718JP-F: Focus on Watercolor I with JoAnn Pippin

Focus on Watercolor I: The How and Why

Level: Beginners
Monday – Wednesday 9:30 am – 12:30 pm





If you admire watercolors and want to try it yourself, or if you have dabbled in it and want to learn more, this 3-day watercolor workshop is the class for you.

You will learn what basic watercolor supplies you need and how and why to use them. You will practice applying paint with and without brushes for interesting effects. Using what you learned in hands-on activities, your goal is to create a watercolor you will be proud of, to use class concepts to produce future watercolors on your own, or to confidently attend more advanced watercolor workshops.

Classes will meet from 9:30-12:30. You will start on your painting in class, but should plan to work on it at home following class.

You can choose your subject from a supplied drawing and photo, or bring a photo of your own.  Bring any watercolor supplies that you have.  A recommended supply list is available, and JoAnn will help you compare what you have to what is recommended.  If you don’t have the supplies on the list, don’t worry.  The Florence Thomas School now sells quality art supplies, so you be able to buy and restock after the first class.
