WATERCOLOR TECHNIQUE AND COLOR THEORY

A gentle entry to creating your art

Design and create a circular book while learning watercolor technique and basic color theory working with a limited palette. 
Instructors Jana L. Bussanich and Leslie McCrea believe that function and beauty need never be separated. They have designed a circular book to serve as a reference for visual notes recorded by each student while mastering four basic watercolor techniques and color theory. Each book is a colorful reference for future watercolor paintings. Label techniques; add notes, inspirational quotes and sketches to complete the project. 

No experience needed. All levels and ages welcome. Recommended for ages 12 years and older.

Classes are held at Cottonwood Center for the Arts.

WORKSHOPS

What's in Your Palette?

Have you bought paints that you loved in the store but haven't used? Do you puzzle over paint names, whether to use Indanthrone or Indigo? Are you overwhelmed by too many paint choices?  You are not alone, but we have solutions!

In this workshop, Leslie teaches you to identify six attributes of the paints you already own and how they apply to your work. Test your paints while developing a beautiful and useful resource book to keep track of your discoveries.  Additionally, you'll learn helpful strategies for future paint purchases. Discovering solutions is good, but it is so much more fun to find them with others. Please join us.
