Watercolor FUNdamentals
In this class we will explore the basic principles of watercolor painting. Learn or refresh your understanding of color mixing, brush handling techniques, resists, flat and graded washes, glazing, wet-on-dry and wet-on-wet techniques, and more. This class focuses on the simple delight of mixing color with water, brushing it on paper, and watching what happens as it moves and dries. You will learn easy ways to create paintings that are all about color and the sometimes unpredictable nature of water. No drawing skills are needed.

Anne’s Bio
Anne has been an avid watercolorist for many years. Playfully exploring this versatile medium continues to surprise her, often sparking wonder and joy. She’s used her knowledge of color and watercolor painting in various professions such as silk-dying, graphic design, floral design, prop styling and calligraphy. Watercolor painting remains her favorite way to experience the feeling of “no time”, and sharing it with others by way of teaching is a dream come true.
