Students are offered 2 sequential series designed for the total beginner, and those with some watercolor experience.

The 5-week introductory Beginner series familiarizes students with a double primary palette, using the watercolor brush and creating watercolor washes, warm and cool color combinations and emotions, designing compositions, and various techniques for creating texture. Students will create an original painting each week.

The follow up 5-week Advanced Beginner series provides ample opportunity to further explore watercolor methods depending on the student’s need and interests. Each week students will paint from a photograph or still life to create an original painting.

Julia’s goal as a teacher is to help students learn the basics of painting – using line, color and shape to capture a three dimensional reality in a two dimensional space.
