Description
Class Level: All levels
Age Requirements: 18 and older
Average Class Size: 10
Teacher: Marika Hahn

What you'll learn in this watercolor class:

Explore wet-on-wet washes to let colors flow and bleed into each other, creating beautifully unexpected effects. Using washes on a dry surface, you’ll experience the reverse—control and form.

This watercolor workshop is an introduction and exploration designed for adults of all artistic abilities. Both methods will encourage your creativity and skills. We’ll be inspired by lush vegetables, fruits, florals, textural displays and decorative lettering. .
