Glorious Watercolor!

We will explore the true nature and properties of watercolor painting.  Watercolor, the way it was meant to be used. Transparent, free-flowing, yet controlled and gorgeous! You will be amazed at the results you can achieve in a relatively short time.  We will also include composition, design, value and color.  There will be lots of short demos and students will paint along.  Come paint with your friends and Toska, a National award winning artist and Signature member of the Watercolor Society of Alabama. “It is my determination to share what I’ve learned and to encourage others to paint and develop their own style.   No holding back!”  Students must furnish their own supplies.   Registered students will receive a list of supplies.  To Learn More:  ToskaCourbronArt.com
