Wednesdays May 17 – June 14, 2023 10:00 – 12:30pm


Watercolor Pencils have been around for some time now.  They are fantastic for sketching in the sketchbook and great to bring with you on vacation.  Just add a little water to the drawn line and the pencil mark becomes a watercolor wash.  But what else can we do with them?  We’ll split our experimentation between still life and the figure.  This is a great Art Clinic for drawing students as well as students interested in water-based painting.  Please note there is a $30 model fee to be paid in class for this session. 

This is a beginner to advanced level Art Clinic.

Class 1) May 17- Introduction to Watercolor and Ink Pencils, organic objects still life

Materials Pass” is an optional fee that rents out all the materials you would need for your Art Clinic class.  For this Session of “Just add Water”, the materials pass is $30.  Please note that with Material Pass, you keep your artwork but are leasing the drawing/painting tools (like brushes and palette).  If you select to pay the Materials Pass, please email Jordan Bruns, to let him know.  You can always email with any questions.
