Innovative Watercolor

with Deena Ball


Expand your views of watercolor and your knowledge of different techniques and materials to create truly innovative personal watercolor paintings. Students will take a look at each aspect of painting and explore alternate techniques and materials. The first week will be spent discussing and experimenting with mark making. Who says you need to use a brush? How about printing with watercolor paint? The second week will explore surfaces and textures… Do watercolors always have to be on cotton rag paper? The third week will involve innovative color and ways of mixing color, pours, bleeds, spraying, and eyedroppers. Students will learn to exploit the special properties of each material. This is a class for intermediate and advanced watercolorists. Students have to bring their usual watercolor supplies. They should be using professional tube watercolors, good quality brushes and surfaces. There is a materials fee of $25, payable to the instructor on the first day of class. Class runs for three sessions: 3/7, 3/14, 3/28. No Class: 3/21. Bring your own lunch/snacks.
