Drawing and Watercolor :  Tuesdays 10 am to 12 noon, July 11 to Aug 15.   5 week class $30.To register call Stephanie at 860 434-1605 ext. 240.

This class will combine drawing with some simple watercolor techniques and pen that works well for producing on the spot paintings. Weather permitting we will work outside for a few classes. Students will learn to see and draw the basic shapes of plants, animals and landscapes; and how to add details after they have the basic construction of the forms. For students who wish to only work with drawing materials, all the exercises will also be able to done in black and white. To first class, bring what you have for drawing and/or watercolor materials. We will go over a suggested supply list in the first class to see if you need to add anything.
