Designed for students who are interested in watercolor, this course will provide a step-by-step process to explore the essential watercolor techniques. We will begin by practicing water control and color mixing, both of which are crucial to overcoming an apprehension of watercolor painting. Students will then be given exercises in color value and mixing. They will learn about various watercolor methods by completing assigned paintings of flowers and other objects, including still life, landscape, seascape and portrait painting. In addition to exploring techniques, students will be encouraged to develop their artistry through assignments that allow for personal expression. Instruction will be delivered in two ways: The first will be asynchronous, with videos that detail assignments and offer reference materials, such as examples of student work as well as the work of master artists. The second part will be class discussion during the listed course hours, which will include demonstrations of techniques and feedback on student work.
NOTE: This course is fully online and offered through a combination of regularly scheduled sessions during the listed course hours, as well as asynchronous material that may include prerecorded lectures and media, and interactive discussions.
