In this 2-day workshop, try a variety of water-based media and discover what suits you best. In this relaxed and informative class students will work with four water-based media: transparent watercolor, water soluble pencil, water soluble crayon, and ink wash. Students will learn master tips about choosing tools and materials; brush control and techniques for each medium. The class format will be a balance of demonstration, hands-on experimentation and question & answer. The focus will be on process and discovery in a safe environment of acceptance and encouragement. If you are excited to push artistic boundaries, or ready to explore a new medium, this workshop is for you. Experienced instructor Wynn Yarrow will guide novices to try their hands at painting and experienced artists to spread their horizons.
