Watercolor Energizer: Loose & Free!

Jane Barnard

October 27 & 28 | 9 - 4

Do you need a creative recharge of your watercolor batteries? Join passionate teacher and painter Jane Barnard to get your artistic juices flowing again. We’ll revisit classic watercolor techniques to loosen up your brushwork, mix clean strong color, and give your painting freshness and pizzazz. Bigger brushes, and boldness will be encouraged! Several techniques will be demonstrated to show you how to apply them to your own “toolbox” of skills. You’ll also have some quiet painting time to work on your own. Jane gives individual guidance and support tailored to your specific personal art goals. For an extra dose of artistic inspiration, we’ll view an art video at the end of the day. Optional: bring works in progress or an image you’d like to paint. Acrylic painters welcome too. A supply list will be sent prior to class and is available at www.theclearing.org.
