Beginning Watercolor with Alan Lewis

This beginning watercolor class will be focused on producing finished work.  I have noticed that I have learned best when following along painting with an artist, so that is the approach this class will follow.  The first week will be devoted to materials, helping negotiate between all the different options, and what the importance of each element is.  First time students are encouraged to attend, and to bring whatever you have.  We will then produce a finished painting each week with a different subject, and returning students are welcomed.  The approach will be to paint fast and loose, to cover the basics of watercolor by doing them, and hopefully to have some fun. Sunday Mornings 10am – 12pm at Wallkill River School
