March 24 – Week 1: Composition and Mood – 1-4pmIn this class students will make a variety of quick watercolor sketches that will inform a more finished painting the following week.  The focus will be on discovering compositions that evoke a mood or feeling.

March 31 – Week 2: Value and Color – 1-4pm
In this class students will elaborate on their chosen composition from the previous week and explore a full color palette.  Watercolor pencils will be utilized for more texture techniques and rendering.

LOCA asks that you wear a mask and bring a hat and a sweater because you will be outdoors in a garden. Wednesday the 24th forecast is for 73 and sunny and there will be a lot of shade. Please bring your own water and a snack if you like. I will have hand sanitizer on hand, extra water and energy bars.
