Watercolor for Teens

Thu, Apr 25
  • Presented By: Visual Art Institute
  • at: Visual Art Institute
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 various 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 skillsets 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!
