WATERCOLOR: CLEAN COLOR AND WHITES
Instructor: Heather Crow

Wednesdays, 10 a.m.–1 p.m.
Cost: $195 Members, Non-members $235
This is the right class for beginners to learn to paint with watercolor or for seasoned painters to gain valuable new experience. Students will learn to use various brushes to lay down fresh, bold color in layered washes and let the white of the paper speak clearly. Paintings will be inspired by close-up flower or vegetable imagery (the concept of “compressed space”
à la Georgia O’Keeffe), the abstracted human figure, and students’ personal photos of landscapes. Juxtaposition of color and contour of edges where shapes and values meet will be stressed. Heather’s own paintings, demos, exercises, and critiques will be part of each class. Maximum of 10 students.
