Watercolor for Adults

Tue, Nov 13
  • Presented By: Visual Art Institute
  • at: Visual Art Institute
  • 2901 Highland Drive, Salt Lake City, UT 84106
Come and discover the FUN, spontaneous medium of watercolors! Students will be introduced to different application techniques such as: wet on wet washes, drop-in color, gradients, and textures, while learning the properties of paint-to-water ratio. We will also discuss how to achieve different painterly effects with different brushes, liquid misquit, and multiple layers of transparent color called glazing. Students will practice how to make different edges, and create different moods, while also just letting the paint do "its thing". Paint-a-long demonstrations will show each step in bringing a piece up to finish. Timing is involved in mastering watercolors and as the semester progresses, students will be able to pick their own reference and subject matter to paint, once they are proficient in their basic skill sets of handling the medium. We will paint abstracts to learn color compliments and harmonies, landscapes to learn depth perception and atmospheric perspective, still-lifes to learn value organization, and finally we will attempt portrait or figures in watercolors! Please note there are three class options (the Tuesday evening session will be only 12 weeks long).
