About the Class:
Watercolors have the reputation of being the most challenging painting medium. The unforgiving white of the paper and the uncontrollable nature of the water makes this medium intimidating. Through a series of exercises, participants will learn how forgiving white paper can be and how to control the water and pigment. Focusing on color and composition, participants will practice techniques while creating small and large abstract paintings. This class is designed to motivate every participant to love watercolors.

About the Instructor:
Dawn Flores is a professional artist and instructor who teaches art classes nationally. She double majored in art and theatre at the Edgewood College, the University of Wisconsin – Madison, and Loyola University in New Orleans. She earned a Certificate I Botanical Art and Illustration from the New York Botanical Garden.
