Arts & DIY

Event Overview

We are going to have fun by applying basic watercolor techniques like wet-on-wet, glazing/layering, lifting, and dry brush to paint. I will share my painting process, including tips and practices that can help improve your observation and drawing skills.

In this experience, you will learn about the design principles of composition.
You will learn about how to create a harmonious color scheme and how to use color to enhance your visual story.

We use a document camera in this class so every student is able to see in live time the full instruction and there is a plenty one-on-one feedback as well. 

By the end of the class you would be able to have 3 finished art pieces 

Also taught by Elena: Watercolor 101: Florals and Watercolor 101: Galaxies
