Learn to Love Watercolors and Pastels

Recommended ages: 17+

Come to one or join both. Each session is considered a separate class. Class Description: I will discuss what elements to put in a painting, what to leave out, How to use photos as a reference, how to position subject matter on painting paper surface for the best visual impact. How to pick the proper size paper for the subject matter depicted. I will discuss outlets for students to sell art, including local business, art in parks, and the internet & of course local galleries. Also will discuss how to determine which pieces of art they produce have the best appeal to a large audience, therefore worth the investment to reproduce on note cards & prints.
