The color wheel as we know it is wrong! ; The color wheel we were taught on, may not apply as neatly to painting as we thought.

Instructor: Laurie Adams (www.loreleiarts.us)

Adults & Teens 15 and overMinimum 2, maximum 8

Prerequisite: Some previous experience required.

For beginning watercolor students who have taken a watercolor class before, existing watercolor artists whose techniques are rusty, or artists who want some continuing instruction or who want to learn new techniques. If you have no previous experience with watercolor, I suggest you take a beginning watercolor class prior to this class.

The color wheel as we know it is wrong! That statement is a little controversial; it is not necessarily wrong as it is the color wheel we were taught on, may not apply as neatly to painting as we thought, especially with the traditional blue, red and yellow primary colors. Pack a snack and join me while I explain why in this class. This class will be part lecture, demonstrations and exercises suited to your own paints and specifically suited to painting with watercolor. If you have never painted with watercolor before, I recommend taking a beginner class before taking this class because you will need some of the techniques used to paint in watercolor for some of the exercises. You will leave this class with a better understand of color theory and how you can apply it to your paintings going forward.

This is a 3-hour class but there will be a short break in the middle.

Bring to class: Bring your own watercolors to this class. Contact the instructor for a recommended supply list. However, if you are still building your own supplies, I will have extras on hand. I will be providing some materials such as paper and templates, and some take home items. You may also bring extra paper (140# cold press). You may bring snacks, a lunch and drinks to this class. Contact the instructor if you have any questions.
