This class will introduce beginners to drawing and perspective principles needed for a watercolor composition using the dry and wet-on-wet approaches. Following class demonstration, students will work on their own paintings with the guidance of the teacher. The extended period (2:30-5:30 p.m.) allows time to set up, work, and clean up. Note: The coordinator will send students a list of required materials (estimated cost: $150) prior to the first class. Please notify the office if you do not receive the list at least three weeks before the start of class.
