Creating Textual Effects in Watercolors


with Elizabeth Keenan

Calendar Oct 29, 2020 at 6 pm, runs for 6 weeks

Online class: Painters will experiment with different ways wet paint will react to paper. It can be very interesting to create various textural effects that can then be used to replicate a surface or texture with intention while painting. Recordings of this class will be available for participants to replay part or all of the lesson during the week. Students will be given a list of supplies to purchase upon registration.

Instructor Bio: "I've been an artist my entire life, noticed and commented on since my kindergarten report cards. I've been a certified Art educator since 1992. I'm endorsed by the state of Massachusetts and Maine. I've been an instructor (drawing, painting, ceramics ) as well as owned and operated a successful seasonal restaurant on MDI for a decade."
