What you'll learn in this painting class:

In this six week course students explore the possibilities of watercolor painting on Yupo a unique synthetic paper that is slick and non-absorbent.

Unlike traditional watercolor paper, Yupo can be worked and reworked multiple times making it the perfect substance for beginning and advanced artists. 

These "slick" properties allow the colors to remain bright and vibrant and to flow and blend differently than on traditional watercolor paper. Yupo lends itself well to vibrant compositions, abstraction, immediacy, printing techniques, and intuitive painting, especially since the paint can be easily removed.  This class will focus on technique, composition, color use, and help students develop or expand upon their existing style through exploration.

The watercolors used are the same as in traditional watercolor; all materials are supplied for this series and students will take away their own original works.
