Please join us for an intense overview of the act of designing a watercolor.  The class will cover: 1) The act of choosing a subject that speaks to us on a personal level; 2) How to decide what story we wish the interpretation of that subject to tell; 3) How to choose which elements to use and which to leave out.  The goal is to complete the work - allowing it to tell its story  - in as direct, effective, and economical away as s possible.

Experience with watercolor is recommended for this course.  Students with no or limited watercolor experience are highly encouraged to take Basic Watercolor Technique on September 15th.
