Tom Nixon

Beginning Watercolor for People with No Time or Talent

Aug 19-24, 2018 (Four Teaching Days)

If the phrase "the fuzzy end of the brush goes into the paint" is a revelation to you, then this is the class you are looking for. This class is designed for the person who has absolutely no artistic ability but yet wants to try something new or learn watercolor. We will work towards the understanding of watercolor and how to handle this wonderfully fun medium so you can produce landscapes.

First two days will be devoted to handling the technique of watercolor and creating the illusion of depth. Last two days will be devoted to learning design and composition. We will complete two paintings each day. Come join us and have fun learning in a no-pressure environment.
