WATERCOLORS FROM THE BEACH
Saturday & Sunday
February 13th & 14th, 2021
Learn how to paint with fluidity during this watercolor workshop. You’ll work on brilliance of colors and purity in paint application as you practice your skills. Can you juxtapose colors to make them appear to vibrate? You’ll be inspired by Carol’s daily demonstrations and experiments to create wet, loose watercolors while you learn about color, water, design, and value. Carol will focus on imagery, content, point of view, and taking risks. Afternoons will include individual instruction and group critique, and Carol will discuss and take questions on marketing and using social media to build your artistic career.
****** COVID-19 POLICY FOR IN-HOUSE WORKSHOPS ******
We are following all CDC guidelines and safety protocols to ensure a comfortable and safe experience for all who enter the BAC. We will be practicing social distancing by limiting class size and separating class chairs 6' apart.
All staff, volunteers and students will be required to wear a face covering or mask that covers your nose and mouth. Sick and vulnerable persons should not enter the building. No-touch temperature will be taken. All who enter must register upon entry. Hand sanitizer stations will be placed throughout BAC.
(We hope that by 2021, these precautionary steps will no longer be necessary, but this can only be determined as we get closer to the workshop date.)
