Class Description  
These dynamic and fluid mediums will lead you on an exciting journey in this class. Not only will you learn basic skills in watercolor, acrylic and mixed media, but how to utilize the paint and explore additives and tools used to manipulate surfaces for interesting applications. We will discuss color theory and compositional structure as we conduct small material experiments and then carry them into our paintings. If you are looking to loosen up, and find your inner improvisational artist within, take this class with Ashley of paint and innovative strategies.

You will see how forgiving watercolor can be when it is allowed to participate and move freely. Lynda shares how to focus on the atmosphere of a landscape creating minimal composition. She will also show how to use controlled brush strokes to lift the spirit of the animal and let the personality shine.
