What you'll learn in this watercolor class:

DUE TO COVID 19 WE HAVE MOVED THIS CLASS ONLINE 

This class will cover the basics of watercolor painting, by explaining the different materials, what to look for in brushes, paper, and the difference between different grades of paint.  Using demos, chats, and painting from the still life or your own photos, you will learn how to work with watercolors and not against them. 

Basic Supply List:

  • Paper

I recommend Winsor & Newton or Arches cold press watercolor blocks (pad), 9x12 or larger. You can purchase individual sheets as well, which is a bit cheaper than a full block.

  • Paint 

Windsor and Newton Watercolor tubes:

-Lemon yellow

-Windsor red

-Ultramarine Blue 

-Ivory Black

  • Palette 

Many plastic and metal palettes to choose from, try and bring one that has a few separate mixing areas.

  • Brushes 

Sable or synthetic round size 06

  • Miscellaneous 

-2b pencil and sharpener

-Kneaded eraser

-Sketchbook

-Water container

-Paper towel

-Board for taping down paper

-2 inch blue tape

Students must bring their own supplies.

This class is part of the Hippo Factory - Instructed Open Studio session. 

Taught in a limited size group, the class is structured so that students receive high level personalized instruction in the area of focus that they wish to explore: DRAWING, WATERCOLOR and OIL PAINTING.

Make-ups are not owed to a student and have no monetary value, they are a courtesy extended by Hippo Factory. Please note you may only take a make-up class when you are enrolled for a least a month and may only be used within the dates you are enrolled. A make-up class is an opportunity to try a different class or teacher and may not be used in the class you are in or added on at the end of the session. Make-ups expire at the end of the year they were acquired in.

Question from Anonymous
I'm unclear on how the start dates work. Is it $45 per class and I pick whichever class I want to attend? Is it a course where I have to take certain classes in a row or will it make sense if I pick random classes that work with my schedule?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there, yes this is a one-session class and you can certainly choose the date and time that works for you. Hope this helps!
