Adult Beginning Watercolor Painting with Jolene Clement

Students will learn and experiment with mixing colors, blending, applying transparent layers, glazing, and fun techniques in texturing.  Simple lessons to bring in the importance of contrast, tone, value, design and composition will be given for you to try; with the outcome being beautiful paintings. Demonstrations will be given for students to follow step by step which are helpful for beginners as well as refreshers for those who have painted in watercolor before.  The idea is to give students the basics as well as provide variety so each student can find their own creative niche and discover/enhance the artist within.    Those who have painted before may follow the demonstrations & lessons or may branch out into individualized lessons, goals, and painting techniques. Students may bring their own supplies and may borrow some supplies or special materials.
