Fun Watercolor Techniques for all ages
August 6 and August 13 from 11:00-12:00 a.m., or sign up and have the recorded session and pre-recorded lessons sent to you - no need to show up at a particular time.
This art activity brings so much enjoyment you will want to make dozens of these papers and save them for art books, cards, gifts, collages and more.
This lesson is set up to be both a "live" Zoom art class and you will receive a pre-recorded art session filled with the fun -packed techniques.
How it works: Log into Zoom and join me and others as we are introduced to the basics of setting up, using the watercolors and gathering all the fun materials needed. We will begin the live session with the watercolors and salt. This live session will be one hour.
Once you are started, we will log off Zoom and you will continue with the pre-recorded watercolor techniques. You can stop and start each technique to give yourself plenty of time to explore each one at your own pace. You might love one technique so much you want to make several at a time.
Plan to work on the techniques for about one half hour each day if possible. I'll recommend how to store your supplies so they are ready to go but out of the way. If you need a reminder each day, just let me know and I'll send you a message or email to ask "How it's going?"
One week after the first lesson, we will meet again and we will work together again for an hour. We will also be able to share what we've made and ask more questions.
If you miss any of the live Zoom sessions, they will be recorded and sent so you don't miss out.
