1 credit hour, 1 week

This course will focus on the materials and techniques of transparent watercolor. During the morning sessions, students will work from a studio still life and explore a variety of techniques and color schemes. Sessions will be individualized as much as possible to accommodate less experienced students. Afternoons will be devoted to a thematic suite of paintings developed over the course of the week.
