"Painting Birds in Watercolor"
Wednesdays, July 6-27, 2022

Get loose, go outside the lines, and be unafraid of your watercolors! During this 4-week course, Kim will guide students through several different approaches to painting birds -- a very direct painting approach, a wet into wet approach, and a unique “throwing paint” approach. Students will learn to relax and open up their creativity and imaginations. Although, continue to explore additional techniques around the making of shapes, using color combinations, simultaneously designing foreground and background, taking advantage of soft and hard edges, students will gain confidence in reaching the point where they realize their painting is done.

"Polar and Panda Bears and Cubs"
November 10-12, 2022

Both engaging creatures are synomymous with the color white, but guess what? White fur is like white snow. It often reflects subtle and beautiful ambient colors. And Pandas live in rich forest-likesettings. There is a ton of creative color possibilities, and that is what we will be exploring with both mamas! A simple five-color palette and two round watercolor brushes will be required.
