Do you want to make art, but don’t feel comfortable calling yourself “an artist?” Does watercolor intimidate you? We will explore the elements of watercolor and what potential it holds as a practice, as well as ways to silence the inner critic that keeps us from expressing ourselves.
This class is a mixed-ability, beginner-to-intermediate level, adaptive class that is fully inclusive of people with disabilities. We will craft our own devices to make the act of painting simple. Exercises will be both conceptual and drawn from life. Whether you want more control over the medium, or long to loosen up more, this class will give you strategies to tune your unique artistic voice.
