Students will learn techniques of practical color mixing and try texture experiments. Creative watercolor instruction and material will be from the Michael Wilcox School of Color. Students who have taken watercolor before are welcome to attend and learn the Wilcox mixing techniques.

Watercolor can also be used to make greeting cards and illustrate books. Acrylic paint is a quick-drying paint that is brilliant and durable. Students’ paintings will dry in time to frame on the last lesson.
