Water Color Painting Classes Beginning April 2019

 Would you like to try painting for the first time or improve on your painting technique?  Watercolor Painting Classes by Beth Bale.  These fill up quickly so decide now to reserve your space!

Beginner Watercolor Painting, 6-class series, with Beth Bale

Watercolor artist, Beth Bale, will be teaching a series of beginner watercolor painting classes starting in April.  These classes are for people who want to learn watercolor techniques and become more confident in their use of this amazing artistic medium.  No experience is necessary.   Students will be taught specific watercolor techniques each class and Beth will do demonstrations of these techniques and create a painting each class as she guides the class in the painting for the day.  The classes will focus on animals, landscapes, waterscapes and florals.  Classes are fun and watercolor is awesome!

Students will be sent the materials list for the classes so they can have their own supplies or may use Beth’s paints, paper, brushes and palettes for $5/class.  Students using Beth’s 4 basic supplies will still need to bring the other basic items on the materials list.

Cost: $120 for the series of 6 classes (sorry, but there are no refunds for classes missed)

Dates: Sundays, April 28, May 12 & 26, June 9 & 23, July 14, Time: 2 pm to 4 pm

 


Intermediate Watercolor Painting, 6-class series, with Beth Bale

Watercolor painter Beth Bale will lead 6 classes for intermediate watercolor painters, starting in April.  These classes are for artists with experience in watercolor painting, who are comfortable with basic watercolor techniques and want to improve their skills and knowledge of watercolor painting.  Beth will challenge students to expand their experiences with watercolor, try new things, pay attention to issues such as composition, values and perspective as well as using multiple watercolor techniques in each painting.  As always, Beth will demo in each class and guide students in using the techniques discussed to create paintings of their chosen topic/photo.  Students may work on any subjects they wish, but each class will focus on a topic or topics and Beth will guide students wishing to work on this topic, but always provides individual help and guidance throughout class.  Each class will focus on a technique or subject, such as light and shadow, how to loosen your brushstrokes, the importance of good composition and a solid sketch, establishing a center of interest, etc.  Beth is a fun and encouraging teacher, who wants to bring out the most creative part of each student and help them gain confidence in their art.

Students will be provided with the materials list for the classes so they can come prepared for class and can work on paintings between classes.

Cost: $120 for the series of 6 classes

Dates: Sundays, April 28, May 12 & 26, June 9 & 23, July 14 (sorry, no refunds for missed classes)

Time: 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm
