This course is for students who are interested in developing their ability to use watercolor paints and to expand their knowledge and sensitivity to color. Through structured exercises and free studies, students will explore shape, color, design elements, and principles. Watercolor is a very challenging and rewarding medium. It takes skill to control, yet must appear to be free of control. In attempting to master this exciting medium, students must first become acquainted with its tools and techniques and then practice what they have learned over and over again. The course will include in-class assignments, homework, and a final project. Creative production will be contextualized through slide lectures of watercolor paintings by well-known artists. This is an introduction to watercolor for students with no previous experience.
