What to Expect

Watercolor Instruction with Ed Hinkley

A typical class has three to six individuals painting at different levels: from those beginning to use watercolor, who have some experience or taken classes in drawing or painting, to those familiar with various water media, who enjoy working in a mentoring relationship to develop a body of work, pursue commissions, exhibitions, artist residencies, or grant opportunities.

The new student will begin by working toward an understanding of traditional watercolor fundamentals through exercises in color, composition and technique and will be expected to experiment with a wide variety of subject matter and styles, with the goal of ultimately developing and working from their own source material.

PLEASE NOTE:  Beginners with no previous drawing or painting instruction who are interested in attending class should contact me prior to registration. While classes are small and taught with individual instruction, students should be self-directed, willing to put in the necessary practice time during and outside of class, and feel they would like to be part of this kind of studio environment and interaction.
