In this beginner workshop students will be introduced to the enchanting medium of watercolours through simple demonstrations and exercises, and they will complete their own unique watercolour painting! We will be learning about the proper tools and supplies, understanding the balance of colour and water, mixing colours, and the importance of tone. This class is intended for students who would like to try their hand at this unique medium, have fun, and leave with a completed piece! This virtual workshop is a foray into our multi-week classes which we hope to resume in the Fall.
