Join watercolor painter, Dave Cook, in this 6-week class exploring several different approaches to producing beautiful and compelling landscapes. We will compare realism, abstraction, and expressive experimentation to discover the unique versatility and beauty of transparent watercolors. You will also find how to use elements of good design that are critical to successful work, and be introduced to simple and helpful drawing and painting techniques that will increase self-confidence and produce immediate results. You will learn how to use sketchbooks with valuestudies and color sketches to help create successful paintings. We will study the effects of composition, light, atmosphere, color temperature and contrast on the mood we want to create, and the story we want to tell. We will enjoy learning and exploring together to discover the creativity within and ways to express it. Instruction will be individual and through demonstrations.This course will be useful to artists at any level, and there will be time for individual painting and positive critique.

Please sign up early; class size is limited to 12 students.
