Enrich your knowledge of the World of Watercolor
with  John McLaren
This class (is full) will be a mix of discussion, demonstration, and numerous exercises.  
When you're done you will...
* be better prepared for making intelligent selection of your materials - paints, brushes,  and surfaces. 
*  have a firm understanding of the difference between watercolor and other wet mediums, and what makes watercolor so unique and mysterious.
*  know the truth about many of the 'myths' surrounding watercolor and find out why 'color' is NOT  the most important characteristic of watercolor paint
* see how watercolor can open a whole new chapter in your creative process. 
There is nothing you need to bring, but feel free to bring any 
watercolor materials that you might have questions about.
