Jane Skafte offers a judgment-free opportunity to explore watercolor in this four-week online Zoom class for beginning and intermediate artists. It is all about enjoying creative exploration in color. The subjects will be from reference photos that Jane will send via email links prior to our meetings. In each class session, a variety of techniques and strategies for experimenting with materials will accompany instruction in basic brush skills, transparent layering and color mixing.
