This is a great class to learn several different techniques to create several different varieties of trees. Using wet in wet and wet in dry watercolor we will experiment with a Palette knife, credit card, sponge, toothbrush, spray bottle and a variety of brushes to create birch trees, oak trees and many others!

February 2 – Techniques to create texture will be introduced and demonstrated. Students will begin experimenting with these techniques and begin their painting of a birch tree.

February 9 – A variety of trees are demonstrated and students will start creating their own variety of trees. Paint glazing is begun on students’ birch tree painting.

February 16 – More tree varieties are demonstrated and students experiment on their own. Students will start splattering, throwing paint, adding texture and interest to their birch tree painting after a demonstration of these techniques.

February 23 – Final tree varieties demonstrated and students experiment on their own. Final glazing added to birch paintings. Any remaining questions answered.
