In this course you will learn the basics of one of the most enduring art forms in our culture: watercolor painting. It is the easiest way of expressing yourself through art and has a long history of teaching great painters their first lessons in subjects ranging from proper technique to design principals. Most books and courses out there demand a large amount of self-study and miss the point of learning to paint--to have fun! Included in the course are tips from professional painters, examples of some of the great watercolor work ever created, and instructions that can take you from never having picked up a brush to completing your first full painting in no time. It is also sure to make sure you learn the right things at the right time, and that you have time to let the knowledge soak in before rushing off to the next concept.
We'll make sure you aren't intimidated by the long aisles of the art supply store stacked with thousands of different types of paint, brushes, and other tools. You'll be able to talk the talk as well as walk the walk as we share the meaning behind things like the "belly-width" of your brush or the "value" of your paint. You'll be able to share your gift with others in no time, and become a part of an international community of artists going back hundreds of years. Whether you are just looking for something new to do in your spare time or perhaps starting a new career, this course is developed for you.
