WATER MEDIA: PAINTING INTENSIVE

The Long Island Academy of Fine Art is offering a brand new course in their summer workshop schedule. Register now! Enrollment is limited.

WATER MEDIA: PAINTING INTENSIVE
instructor: Diana Corvelle

TUESDAYS
July 5th – August 29th
11:00 AM – 2:00 PM

This class invites all levels of artists to translate their skills to water-based media. Gouache, watercolor, acrylic, and water-soluble crayons or colored pencils all provide a rewarding relationship with color and form, and can also be used together in creative combinations. After an introduction to the basic techniques of each media, and an overview of how combining the materials can best be achieved, students may choose which medium they would like to explore and begin on their independent project. Students will begin by mapping out their composition in pencil and will then progress to the color in the medium(s) of their choosing. Subject matter may include still life, self-portrait or master copy works.

Students may choose gouache, watercolor, acrylic, or water-soluble crayons or colored pencils, and focus on still-life, self-portrait, or Master copy projects. All levels welcome.
