University Connected Learning
Haven't held a paint brush since elementary school but have a desire to express yourself in color? Know nothing about painting or drawing? This course is for you. You will produce art work that you can be proud of. You will gain understanding of the basics including the color wheel, blending, shading, contrast and composition. You will experience the joy of creativity. You will be transported to a new world where nothing matters but color. This term we will spend three sessions on animals and three sessions on flowers. Students should bring to the first class a pad of watercolor paper (9 x 12 cold press 140 lb.) a cup for water, a roll of toilet paper, a minimum of 3 watercolor brushes (small #1-4 round, medium #8-10 round and large #14 flat), pencil and eraser, 1 oz liquid bottle of acrylic white, and small bottle of mistic. If you have your own watercolors bring them. Either buy a tray with a minimum of 8 colors, or buy the white, plastic empty tray with between 8 and 24 wells. If you do the latter, a list of what tubes to buy will be sent after registration. Class will be held via Zoom.
