In this class, we’ll start with a basic introduction of watercolor tools. You will learn how to create, blend and shape colors with brush strokes. 

The steps will take you from never having picked up a brush to putting it all into action by creating your own dreamy watercolor painting.

This is a really fun & free approach to watercolors. We’ll be layering colors for a luminous effect and creating texture & depth with technique. We'll explore dropping intense color onto wet paper and watching the unique flow of this special medium.
