CLASS DESCRIPTON

This dynamic and fluid medium will lead you on an exciting journey in this class.Not only will you learn basic skills in watercolor and how to utilize the paint, but you we will also explore additives and tools used to manipulate surfaces for interesting applications. We will discuss color theory and compositional structure as we conduct small material experiments and then carry them into our paintings.  If you are looking to loosen up, and find your inner improvisational artist within, take this class with Jessica.  Be inspired to step outside of the box with an expressive handling of paint and innovative strategies.  www.jessicarwillis.com
