Project Description

I'm hoping that this class will get you started playing with watercolor. Experimenting, playing and testing color can be a life-long pursuit that you can continue even after your skills with the medium have developed.

To be the most useful and fun for you, I'm leaving the project open ended. You can try any of the techniques and exercises that I demonstrated, or experiment in your own way. No matter what you choose to try, I hope you'll share a photo and description with the class.
