  • Overview

    Techniques in watercolor and related media will be covered in this course, including demonstrations in basic wash and brush stroke exercises, color mixing, and direct representational drawing-painting watercolor exercises. There will also be longer-range studio projects assigned in this class. Most of the studio projects will involve working with subjects such as still life, landscape and self-portrait work. To a lesser extent, there will be projects involving abstraction and interpretation using this illuminating and fascinating medium. In addition to in class demonstrations, information about watercolor will be presented in short and informal power point lectures.

    This is a beginning level course. Some experience in linear drawing would be an advantage. However, if needed, basic lessons and demonstrations will be given to students who need drawing experience during this course.

    The objectives of this course are:

    1. To improve the student?s ability to observe 3d subjects, record them accurately in well designed watercolor media compositions
    2. To help each student learn to anticipate the most effective ways
    of working with watercolors and to develop, (more or less) individual and expressive watercolor media approaches.
    3. To encourage students to select their own subject models and reference materials in order for them to develop unique personal content in their artwork.
