Watercolors are one of the most recognized and loved forms of painting and lend themselves to a diversity of styles. The unique properties of water-based paints allows them to be combined with different materials to create new effects. We will experiment with a range of papers and see how the watercolors look on different canvases. We will also mix watercolors with oil pastels, crayons, and even a few ingredients from the kitchen. How far can you take this medium? What new effects will you create by mixing watercolors? Join us for this exploratory afternoon!
