TreeSong Nature Awareness Center presents “Watercolors in the Wild” with Andie Thrams. Part 1 of this course will be held online from 9:30 a.m. to noon March 11.
This is a continuing series of monthly online classes for field journal keepers, plein air artists and painters to paint with increasing ease both indoors and out. Step-by-step sequences explore watercolor and gouache painting techniques, drawing, color studies, tools of the trade, field journal approaches, artist book creation, botanicals, composition and design, tips for painting outdoors and how these practices can kindle joy and deepen a connection to nature and to others.
In this class, attendees will apply what they’ve learned so far in the Watercolors in the Wild series to go big, and create a basic book arts structure. This two-part class invites spring flora into making a folding folio with pockets, perfect to hold your class artwork for future reference and inspiration. In Part 1, attendees will create shimmering paper surfaces on large sheets, inspired by spring flora, using watercolor, ink, and mica. End Part 1 with painted paper, ready to fold and finish in Part 2.
Registration is required to attend. Cost for this course is a sliding scale from $26 to $47. For more information, visit www.treesongnatureawareness.org
