Watercolor Experiments Saturday, April 24
What happens when you add salt to water? What if you introduce color to dry paper? Would it look different than wet paper? Become an Art Scientist and make new discoveries through the watercolor medium.
Learn to construct the human face and form with instruction of anatomy and proportion. Create a specific mood and allude to narrative in each artwork using color and style.
