10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Instructor: Jo Myer-Walker
Watercolor painting is gentle and unburdened alluring us with colors, shapes and exciting compositions if we act intuitively and let the painting paint itself, honoring those happy accidents. Jo begins with drawing and composition concentrating on value and overlapping shapes for distance making. She will demonstrate each week color mixing with 3 colors on the paper to give a fresh lively effect stressing a cool or warm dominance. She will also show layering, glazing, wet in wet and salt resist. She provides handouts on flowers, landscapes, trees and her favorite, birds and chickens. If we don’t take ourselves to seriously we learn more while we are having fun and yes unburdened. Students are encouraged to bring the watercolor supplies they have on hand and a supply list will be provided. She will have available Arches 140lb 22” x 30” paper for $5.50 a sheet.
