November 14, 18-”WINTER WATERCOLORS” taught by KAREN BERG
Paint “mini-pictures” of different winter scenes that can be holiday cards and learn what to do to print larger landscapes into cards (Part 1). Then, taking several scenes/elements from the smaller paintings, we integrate them into a larger winter landscape (Part 2). You will paint several winter scenes on smaller sized watercolor papers, playing with “winter” colors (blues, greens, grays), leaving in the whites, and using various techniques on snow, rocks, trees, foliage, and water. To paint the larger winter landscape, we combine information and strategies practiced on the scenic elements and add colorful skies. Vibrant sunrise/sunsets can be created using buffer colors to avoid mud. Different brush and texture techniques are used to enhance your artwork. Demonstrations of techniques, resources, and step-by-step instruction are provided. Materials will be furnished including professional grade paper and paint for use in class; though you are welcome to bring your own supplies.  Please bring your own brushes.  All levels of watercolor artists are welcome to paint with us. No experience needed to be a part of this project-based class with projects provided or you can bring your own. Karen is an award winning Artist and a member of KAA, WOW, OSA, and WSO. Thursdays 9:00 - 12:00  and 1:00-4:00. $25/class; both classes $50. $5 materials fee per class paid to instructor each class.
