This is an online class!
Returning students and those with previous watercolor experience can continue to practice their color mixing, wet-on-wet, glazing, and dry brush skills. We’ll paint a variety of subjects including landscapes, architecture, and nature.
Using the free online Zoom platform, follow the watercolor techniques demonstrated by the instructor and apply them to your paintings. There will be group discussion and the opportunity to get feedback on your work and answers directly from Andrea. The sessions will be recorded so you can review each class. Supply list provided.
Instructor: Andrea Mackin
Wednesday, 10 am–12:30 pm
Five classes: July 15, 22, 29; (No class August 5), August 12, 19
The day before the first class you will receive an invitation from Andrea to join the online Beginning Watercolor class in the (free) Zoom application. At that time, Andrea will make sure everyone can get into Zoom the day before the class is set to run.
Watch this orientation video if you are new to Zoom: https://youtu.be/hIkCmbvAHQQ. You may download and install the Zoom application at any time. We recommend you do this after you enroll in class or at least one day prior to your first online class. Choose the download option that best fits your technology. Unless you will be using an iPad or mobile device, the first option is most likely the one you’ll need.
