Watercolor

Instructor: Paul Pietsch

May 27 - June 24

Wednesdays, 7-10 pm EST

 

Watercolor is an ideal medium for learning at home. It is versatile, non-toxic and easy to set up and to clean up. It is also compatible with other media you may wish to explore at home, including other water-based paint, colored pencils and pastels.  

 

In this half-term class, students will learn the basics of handling watercolor, focusing on the properties of the medium as well as techniques for using it such as painting washes, glazes, wet-in-wet and light to dark. Students will work from photos as well as from still lifes they set up in their home. Through group discussions and critiques, students and the instructor will cultivate an online studio community based on constructive feedback. The ultimate goal of the course is not to teach students how to paint in a particular way, but rather to enable students to develop a competency in the medium that facilitates their own artistic explorations. 

 

Instruction will be live through Zoom, with additional resources provided through email or Google Classroom. Instructions for using Zoom will be sent prior to the class.
