Learn to express your ideas and creativity through the beauty of watercolor on the gem of the Golden Isles of Georgia – Jekyll Island. Begin to build a solid foundation of basic watercolor skills and learn the unique properties of this medium: pigments, mixing colors with a limited palette, brush control, methods of applying watercolor to paper, papers available for watercolor and building values in a painting. Through natural progression, learn to change shapes into forms, create a color wheel, learn about color theory, and throughout this process paint a number of scenes based on subject matter readily available all around you. Be inspired and create lovely watercolors!
