A basic to intermediate all-day class which is designed to inspire your creativity. This session will help students loosen their approach to watercolor. Students will also paint with acrylic which works like watercolor and at the same time develop a painting to a finished image ready to mat. A study in backgrounds will also be discussed.

Materials should include:
1 sheet of w/c paper - 140 lb - cold press (no tablets please)
1 or two sheets of synthetic paper (Yupo)
Brushes - at least 3 - one flat brush of an inch or larger
one round brush - 12 or 14 size
one very small brush to be used for detail
Three colors (at least) of watercolor paint - a red, blue and yellow (not student grade please and are available at the Eye of the Eagle Art center) or Matisse Flow acrylic which works like watercolor (Instructor will have some tubes of this also)
Container for water
Backboard which supports your painting
Clips or masking tape to hold your paper
Paper towels
Small sketchbook or a couple of photos of VERY simple design

Most of these supplies can be purchased at Eye of the Eagle also, but call first to make sure.
