Age Requirements: 18 and older
Average Class Size: 10
Teacher: Marcelo Daldoce

What you'll learn in this watercolor class:

As a medium that allows only a few corrections, the basis of watercolor must be understood. Students will learn the medium’s behavior on wet and dry paper and how to cause accidents without losing control, allowing the medium express itself and create images that are alive. The goal is to win trust and obtain definitive results in this technique. 

There will be daily lectures, demonstrations, exercises, and one-on-one guidance to find each student’s own style. Working from the model, students will be guided through a series of exercises, beginning with a series of quick gestural studies and progressing to longer paintings.  

Q&A

Q: Can I make up a class if I miss one? 
A: No, there are no makeup classes. Because art is taught with demonstrations and demonstrations are time consuming, if one person misses the class each week, the instructor would spend the first part of each class repeating the demonstration from last week before moving on to the next lesson, which isn't fair to the students who attended. That said, most of our classes are taught atelier style. If there is a demonstration during the particular session, after the demonstration, the instructor goes to each student to work with them on a one-on-one basis. During this time, the instructor can work with you if you missed the previous week to talk and explain what to do.

MAKE-UP POLICY
Unfortunately, we do not offer makeup classes. The instructor can tell them what they missed. Most of our classes are taught atelier style. If there is a demonstration during the particular session, after the demonstration the instructor goes to each student to work with them on a one-to-one basis. During this time the instructor can work with the student who missed the previous week, talk with them and explain what to do.

The Figure In Watercolor
Reviewed by Ralph J. on 4/27/2017
Marcelo is a great teacher. He gives informative demonstrations .He also encourages his students students develop their personal style. Once or twice the model arrived late due to miscommunication from the NY Academy of Fine Arts. The teacher made up the time and alway gave us exercises to do while we waited for the model to arrive. I have been very pleased with the class.
