    WATERCOLOR EXPLORATION: Landscapes and more with Kathy Becker, Wednesday's 12:30-3:30pm 
    Come enjoy a relaxed atmosphere to explore the different qualities of watercolor. We will begin the session with landscape step-by-step demos, but the class will be encouraged to bring in their own sources to work from with individual help readily available to help the student through the process.  We will review techniques through demonstrations, learning tricks of the trade. The importance of choosing a color scheme and composition will be incorporated into each class. The steps of starting with a photo source, cropping if necessary, value studies, and drawing using a good composition will help students gain the confidence they need to be able to paint independently! Students will be encouraged to experiment and explore their own interests.

    Indeed there does come an age, usually around 8 or 9 years, when we begin to see our drawings as others do, and most of us are usually disappointed with what we see - and give up on drawing. But actually, with tuition and encouragement, all of us can learn to draw pretty well, and more importantly, feel the pleasure that comes with this kind of expression.” From “Want to improve your kids’ writing? Let them draw” by Misty Adoniou, University of Canberra
