Watercolor Art Lessons Class

with LK Papadakis, Local Artist

Learn to paint with style and confidence! Each class is two sessions: The first will begin with a basic introduction to acrylic paint, which is colorful, easy to use, dries fast and cleans up with water. We will paint in a paper pad made for acrylics, while we practice color mixing, brush techniques and layering paint. A reference photo will be provided, and we will learn how to transfer the image onto a canvas. Then, we will paint the first layer in brown and white. 

The second session will be devoted to painting the canvas from the first layer of color through several more coats until we are ready to apply the final details. We will learn more about mixing colors, using brush techniques and glazing paint. By the end of the second session, depending on our progress, we will have a finished gem of a painting, or a nearly complete one that you can touch up at home.
