NEW DATES! In this new class, students will explore ideas that inspire and then learn how to utilize specific techniques to bring their ideas to life. Water based media, such as watercolor, ink, coffee, patterned paper, color pencils, ink transfers, markers and soft pastels in any combination will be explored. Students will be encouraged to break down their ideas into color, mood, images, patterns, and composition. Students will experiment with different ways to use the materials to develop vibrant texture in their painting. Students will start painting with a foundational stain before building layers of images and patterns with watercolor, ink and paper. Composition and image emphasis will be emphasized while building up multiple layers to a finished project. Open to all skill levels. This class will be held at the Art Education Center, 110 Westover Ave., Williamsburg Arts District.
