Simply Watercolor (Zoom classes in October)

Update:  See the Classes and Events page for current offerings.

Mondays in October, I’m offering “Simply Watercolor,” a series of one-hour online watercolor classes via Zoom. Classes will be from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. CDT (Central Daylight Time) on October 5, 12, 19, and 26, 2020.

I’ll be teaching the basics — watercolor is gentle and unburdened, especially if we don’t try and control every move. We begin with textures, shapes, lifting, mixing colors and overlapping shapes. Drawing and value start us off as we begin with watercolor warm-up exercises. Each session I’ll demonstrate a simple watercolor emphasizing the lesson for the day and you can paint along with me. I’ll provide a suggested supply list, but use whatever you are comfortable with.

I planned this class in coordination with the Iowa City/ Johnson County Senior Center — The Center’s website has a monthly listing of a variety of virtual programs, plus instructions for using Zoom.
