Second class of the fall Science of Watercolor Series:
Learn the science behind why watercolor behaves the way it does. These informative workshops will be full of sciencey surprises and fun hands-on experiments. Additionally, you will create watercolor reference pages that will help you discover more of your personal watercolor preferences.
This Month’s Theme: Additives:
This class is for anyone who has had a general sense of disappointment with the way their watercolor painting looks, even though their underlying drawing and color choices are are all sound. We’ll practice pinpointing exactly what is is we don’t like, and learn about a variety of products and tools that help you fix mistakes, mix watercolor with a wide variety of other media, get smoother layers, get crisper or softer edges, get smoother or more textured color washes, and more. You are encouraged to bring your own works-in-progress to analyze.
Supplies: Watercolor paints and samples of additives provided, bring a variety of brushes, and at least one sheet of good quality watercolor paper at least 8″ x 10″. I recommend Stonehenge Aqua cold press.

About the artist:
I am an illustrator and substitute teacher in Minneapolis, MN. My formal training is in science, and I am still a nerd–a nerd who draws. Besides drawing, I love helping people understand things, dancing, ice-skating, bike riding, anything Japanese, hanging out with my family, and the magic of making things by hand.
An email with supply list and details will be sent to registrants prior to the class.
