ENRICH-0780 – Art Zoom: Intro to Watercolor (ENRICH-0780_WATR)

Intro to Watercolor
One Zoom Session
Sat., Nov. 4, 2023, 9 am-12 pm MT

Have you ever wanted to paint with watercolors but didn’t know where to start? Did you pick up some lovely watercolor materials, only to leave them sitting in your drawer after an initial energy burst? Join artist Judith Cassel-Mamet for this introductory, foundational three-hour workshop designed to help you decide what materials you need to get some color on a page (or understand the materials you may already have on hand!). In this class, you learn about the paints (tubes or pans), papers (hot or cold press) and good brushes for beginning efforts. Try some basic techniques so you can better understand ways to cultivate your unique, playful exploration. Judith shows you ways to create texture, ways to let the water flow and ways to add some pen for definition. There’s also time for “paint along” practice as well as Q & A. Think of this as a “sampler” class to get you started. Leave the class with the confidence to incorporate watercolor sketching into a journal practice or to try your hand at more formal watercolor painting. Cassel-Mamet, who has taught many “simple sketch” classes that combine watercolor and pen, loves to encourage students to relax and play rather than taking an academic or rigid approach. It’s time to get those colors flowing!

Judith Cassel-Mamet is a mixed-media artist and instructor who teaches at the Art Students League of Denver, online at Craftsy and The Great Courses. She also leads art journal groups to magical spots in the U.S. and Europe. She’s the author of two books: Joyful Pages: Adventures in Art Journaling and Joyful Pages Playground. She’s the co-creator of a virtual culture and travel journal class called Sketching Spain.
