WATERCOLOR WEAVING

AVAILABLE VIA ZOOM AND/OR IN PERSON IN CLASSROOM

Instructor: Karen Brungardt

Do you have old watercolor paintings too good to throw out but not good enough to frame? Or want to take an old subject to paint and make it fresh again?

In this class, you’ll take old paintings that you don’t quite know what to do with and make them fresh and sparkle with new life in this class. Or, we will paint a new subject from scratch and I’ll teach you how to weave paintings together for a new look and have a good time while doing it.

Instructor: Karen Brungardt

AVAILABLE IN PERSON IN CLASSROOM OR VIA ZOOM

"PAINTING AROUND": Developing depth in watercolor using masking and painting around techniques

In this class, we will use different masking techniques to preserve the white and light areas of the watercolor painting. To create a sense of depth, I'll teach you to use the "painting around" technique in the artwork along with how to remove the masking and handle those areas so they blend in and look natural. This kind of work is more detailed and slower to produce so the class will be all day to give plenty of time to practice the techniques I will teach you. For advanced beginner/intermediate and up.

Cost is $75 for Guild members, $85 for non-members. You can buy supplies for the class for a surcharge of $10, payble to instructor in class. Supply list will be emailed after registration.
