CLASS: WATERCOLOR PAINTING
THURSDAY, JANUARY 17th, 10:30AM – 1PM (ongoing, every other Thursday)
PAINTING SEASCAPES WITH STRONG VALUES
WITH HARWOOD “WOODY” BENTON
FEE: $45 per class
Watercolor painting is the process of staining heavy paper with water based pigment. With practice and patience, you can learn to capture the subtle shapes and light in the world around you. Watercolor, at its best, is about being in the moment and finding the essence of a subject rather than getting caught up in all of the minute details. In this class, we will start from a blank page and learn to bring to life a seascape scene from start to finish. Woody will demonstrate technique and show you how to create relationships with strong values, guiding each person as they try their hands at this wonderful medium.
This class is for adults. You do not have to have any prior experience. Woody has inspired adults for decades to add this form of moving meditation to their self-care regime. Paper supplied, students supply their own paint & brushes. To enroll, please contact by e-mail: email@example.com.
