This 8 week course will be offered starting Monday, December 14th from 9:30-11:30am. This class will be taught by Sharon Schmiedel who has a BFA in painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art and spent many years working in technical illustration, medical illustration, and graphic design. This class is open to students of all levels. We will explore the basic watercolor techniques of working wet on wet, layering, and dry brush. The instructor will do demos and help students gain an understanding of how to use warm and cool colors, plus values to develop strong compositions. Once you learn the basics you can experiment and play with this medium to express your ideas with paint. The fee for this class will be $32.00 and will be due to the instructor at the first class. This class is open to all members, but limited space is available. A minimum of 7 students will be needed to run this class.
