Watercolor Wednesdays at Sunnyside

Weekly Watercolor on Wednesdays will be starting this week at Sunnyside Community Club in Harris County. June 3rd will be the first class. My plan is to include some drawing instruction in all nine of the watercolor classes. I have always made a point of telling students how important drawing is to their development as artists. Drawing teaches us how to create optical illusions, like the optical illusion of deep space on a flat piece of paper. That is the magic for me. Drawing increases our observation skills and helps us access our natural ability to process visual information. Drawing is a relaxing activity, meditative for some people, like me. No matter what medium a student ultimately chooses; watercolor, oil, pastel or clay, drawing comes first.DogwoodBW
