Painting on Paper
This introduction to watercolor and other water-based media course meets in the studio as well as on-site throughout the city. Subjects range from landscape to the model and still life with an emphasis on art historical and current references to subject matter. Painting from observation provides the structure for almost all the assignments but individual interpretation and fluency with color are the ultimate goals of the class.
