Plein Air Watercolors & Beyond
In this class we will go over the basic principles of watercolor and gouache painting, including how to use and care for the materials, what techniques may be implemented in both mediums, and how to work with the medium outside and on the move!
The class will take trips around the LeMoyne Arts campus and garden to paint, while instructor Isabella Parra teaches methods for painting while outside.
