We all love color! When we paint in watercolor, you really need information to create the colors you want without the dreaded MUD! This class will focus on understanding polarity, viscosity and other characteristics of watercolor and how to be successful. Fun will be on the agenda as well good information to help you on your road to success. All levels are welcome.
