Watercolor, Beginning (incl mat'l for first class)   

For all who think that watercolor is one of the most difficult mediums, this course is designed to take the fear away. Students learn how to control this luminous art form to create a finished work suitable for matting and framing. A materials list is provided at the first class, and the instructor will review what to purchase. Cost of supplies is $100-$125, depending on where supplies are purchased. Each class starts with a lesson and demonstration. Then students paint, and the instructor provides individual assistance. Friendly critiques are part of this class.  

Watercolor, Beginning (incl mat'l for first class)
Item: APW1005 Donna Steinmetz
3/8/2024 - 4/19/2024 


9:00 AM - 12:00 PM  Fee: $149.00  


Bring to Donna's first class: Paper towels and a watercolor palette. Palette available from Art and Frame in Sarasota, online from Cheap Joes, Jerry's Artarama, Dick Blick or through Amazon. Palette should be covered for watercolors. More "wells" on a palette allow you to add more colors over time. ACE will have some brushes, paints and watercolor paper for students to use at the first class.

You may want to purchase some paints now due to the recent supply chain issues causing some serious delays. 


Pigments – I like paints by the following companies: Holbein, Daniel Smith, and Mission best. Do not use student grade pigments such as Cotman, Academy, and Grumbacher.  Small tubes, 5 ml are fine for Beginners but 15 ml tubes are more economical for those committed to watercolor. 

Minimum required colors are:  New Gamboge (or Nova), French Ultramarine, and Alizarin Crimson or Quin Pink.   

Additional supplies will be discussed at first class meeting. Cost of supplies will be $100-$125, depending on where supplies are purchased & what you already own. This will be discussed at the first class.
