Tuesdays
 

Continuing Watercolor 04-24

   ASP-495-04-24   /  Tuesday, April 9, 16, & 23

          Location: WCAC - 110 Westover Avenue
          Times: 9:00 - 11:00

              Course Fee:
                Members: $105
                Non-Members: $120
Instructor: Elizabeth Greaf

This is a small class for people who have had some experience with watercolor, preferably at least an introductory class that taught them about watercolor materials and the basics of painting in watercolor.  In this class you will be doing paintings from your own photographs.  The instructor will work with the students as a group and individually during the class to help them further develop their skills.  She will help you plan your approach to your painting, give guidance on the drawing that you are starting with, and then advise, demonstrate, etc. on aspects of the painting wherever you may need her help.  When needed, she’ll use a class session for a concentrated lesson on some aspect of drawing/painting.  When she is working with one student, all are welcome to listen and ask questions as these questions offer a learning opportunity to all.  

Get your materials list when you enroll.  If you have questions about items on the materials list, contact the instructor for information at 516 383-1137 or artbyeliz@gmail.com.

This class is one in which people who are working to continually improve their painting skills often enroll continuously.  People find not only the help of the instructor valuable but to continually take class with the same group of people creates an excellent support group for your painting endeavors.

Questions, Enrollment Deadline & How to Enroll:  Contact Michael Jones, Art Center Manager, by April 5 at (757) 229-4949 or visitwcac@gmail.com to register and make payment.
