Class / Workshop  |  A Day with A View: Window Views with Watercolor Techniques

A Hands-on Virtual Workshop

Artist/Instructor: Jennifer Koury
Fee: $24 for members / $34 for not-yet members

Observing the view from your window, participants will paint four small watercolor paintings of a similar subject using four different approaches. Each approach will create a changing emotional response to your unique location and will be learned while following the instructor's guidance. Gain knowledge of watercolor techniques, including controlling the paper's dampness and the amount of water versus pigment ratio in your paint application, for expressive brushstrokes and washes.
