Video available all weekend July 23rd-25th
Welcome to the wonderful world of watercolour painting! This class will show you some basic skills and techniques to paint a beautiful bookmark for all your summer reading adventures. Playing with a wet on wet technique we will make an abstract painting to create 3 different bookmarks. Have you tried painting with salt or saran wrap before? I will show you how to use these common household items to create interesting texture and visual effects. This class is perfect for beginners and appropriate for all ages. All supplies can be be found at home or purchased from a store that sells craft supplies for about $10. Once you learn watercolour painting you’ll be hooked!
