Watercolor Sketching Workshop

Saturday, 9am-2:30pm

VINS, Quechee, VT 

*What:  *Sketching Nature with Watercolors – Workshop

*When: *Sat. May 11

*Time: *9am-2:30pm

*Where: *VINS Nature Center, Quechee

Details: *Watercolor sketching is a lot easier than you might think.  When sketching, your goal is to capture quick flashes of the things around you rather than create a polished and tightly-rendered image, making the process faster and sometimes much more fun.

The first part of this class will be devoted to some indoor learning such as tools to use, how to use them for quick sketching, and a little bit on mixing pigments.  After a short break, we’ll begin working outdoors, weather permitting, to practice together with guidance.  Drawing lessons are not a major focus of this class but don’t let that inhibit you. Critical warm-up exercises for drawing will be taught.  With practice, these will help you to “see” with a sharper eye and that’s what’s most important.
