WATERCOLOR BATIK

July 30

Instructor: Ronnie Rector

Take your watercolors to the next level with this fun method of using hot wax to save and build layers of color. Together, we will create a painting on rice paper, which adds an extra element of interest. Students will be walked through the batik process, while assisting each with color mixing, composition and values to create a focal point in their work. A working knowledge of watercolor painting is preferred; this class is not for absolute beginners.

*A lunch break is built into this class. Please bring a bag lunch or come prepared to purchase something locally.
