After a basic introduction to the watercolor tools, learn how to create, blend, and shape colors with brush strokes, splattering, sponge, masking tape, salt, and palette knife. Learn various brush strokes and brush techniques that create textures as you work on a

landscape painting.

No prior painting experience is required but don't let the word introduction fool you. Intermediate-level students will gain a lot of great information as well.

All supplies are included in the class fee.
