Join us for a live virtual online class to learn how to paint a stunning galaxy in watercolor. Supply kit provided!
Follow along and ask questions in real time with instruction and demonstration from our talented Teaching Artist via the Zoom video platform.
In class we'll cover watercolor techniques such as wet on wet painting to blend color, pulling out paint to create depth, splatter painting to make your nebulas shine, and using tape to achieve crisp border lines.
We'll incorporate these techniques during a step-by-step walkthrough of how to paint a glowing, starry cosmic scene.
You’ll end class with a unique, gorgeous 6"x8" galaxy painting ready for framing!
This is perfect for beginners, and also those with some experience desiring to try something new.
No experience necessary and supplies provided!
