In our past classes we have focused on Avian species and their habitats, however the Connecticut Audubon Coastal Center offers the opportunity to view and study a diverse array of species, whereby some of the species are living in symbiotic relationships with each other. This can be witnessed on both the shoreline, and in the wetlands.
Therefore, adding some NEW content, Marine Animals, to our studies, along with continuing to study the Avian species, seemed like a great fit.
For now, we will focus on studying the marine animals and avian species that we may actually have a chance to see in Connecticut this year.
This series of adult watercolor classes is still designed for the pure beginner. The student will learn about watercolor tools, uses, products and techniques, as well as composition skills, simple perspective, and how and why to use your light and dark colors to achieve dimension in your work, a highly sought after skill by many artists. Students will have drawing and painting exercises as well, in order to relax and experiment with watercolors. Many students have found this to be a very meditative process, as well as reporting that it was exciting to watch the ever-changing painting results from person to person.
This will all be accomplished step by step, class by class, with your Art Education teacher Jeanne Board-Fayumi. This series is sequential and cumulative.
This series is appropriate for those 18 years of age and above. The class fee includes the use of all drawing and watercolor materials. You may want to bring an old shirt or smock. Class is limited to 12 adults. Minimum enrollment of 6 for the class to run.
Please bring a mask too.
