A Creativity Challenge
scroll down for Supply List and Registration Form
For anyone who has ever taken one of my classes, you have heard me say, “If you don’t like something, do more of it.” It is just one of my mottos. Doing more of the thing that is not working in your painting often fixes an awkward composition, an unwanted pattern, a line in the wrong place and many more trouble areas. It almost always works!
This motto also works if you are not happy with your creativity or your desire to create. If you want motivation to get better at drawing, mixing colors, thinking out of the box, composition, techniques, watercolor, colored pencil or ink just DO MORE OF IT!
In this class, I will demo a different creative idea or concept. It is designed to challenge you just enough to jump start your creativity but also easy to do so you will not be intimidated. You will be able to take it as far as you want to go with it! We will start working on it together and you will finish it on your own.
By the following Thursday, if you send me what you have done, I will post it on my Website so you can see the many ways everyone was inspired to create their unique piece! You can see them HERE.
Two sessions to choose from:
Thursday 4:00 – 5:30 pm on Zoom
Thursday 7:00 – 8:30 pm on Zoom
$25 per class
Watercolor Basics 2
In this class you will learn about color (HUE) and how to mix them. You will create various color wheels (YOU CAN NEVER MAKE TOO MANY OF THESE!) using different combinations of primary colors and even secondary colors! You will learn why some colors will mix to make a gorgeous purple and some make mud. We will talk about warm and cool colors (TEMERATURE) too!
