Full day of instruction and painting.
In the hotel’s Victorian-era Grand Dining Room, we’ll enjoy a buffet with an assortment of seasonal fresh fruits, yogurt, scrambled eggs, hot and cold cereals, breakfast meats, breakfast potatoes, grits, homemade pastries, toast, bagels, and muffins, and a daily special breakfast entrée, plus coffee, tea, milk, juices, and water.
Our instructor begins the Exploring Watercolor with some projects that focus on various types of color theory after reviewing the color wheel. The group explores and practices painting with only monochromatic color, color triads, and complementary colors on smaller projects like cards and bookmarks. These exercises will acquaint the students with vocabulary that will be utilized throughout the week. Questions are encouraged and there is a review before breaking for lunch. We will then begin working on our first drawings and paintings, incorporating these techniques.
In a banquet room at the hotel, we’ll enjoy a selection of salad, sandwich or soup, plus coffee, tea, and water.
We’ll continue painting with individual supervision and suggestions by our instructor. Time to focus, immerse and respond—one on one.
Dinner in the banquet room.
We will finish up the first day’s painting with open studio practice. Those who finish are encouraged to make a few watercolor cards.
