Watercolor is a wonderful art form that is portable and easy! In this workshop we will learn all the basics of painting with watercolor including different blending and layering techniques and how to compose an image. We will go over the ins and outs of choosing brushes and styles of watercolor paint (pan vs liquid watercolors), how to use watercolor pencils, and when to use waterproof pens while doing several exercises to get comfortable with the materials. Once everyone is ready, we will practice painting from a still life composed of fruits, plants, and other fun items from the Jenny Lemons shop! Everyone will go home with several finished paintings ready to adorn your walls and all the supplies to keep painting! This workshop is run by Jennie Lennick, owner of Jenny Lemons, who is passionate about experimenting with materials and making art accessible to everyone.
This class takes place in the brand new Jenny Lemons shop and workshop in the Mission District of San Francisco. All materials are included: Each student will go home with a watercolor set that includes 6 tubes of watercolor paints, 1 watercolor paintbrush, 1 pencil, 1 sharpener, an eraser, and a palette.
This 2.5 hour workshop includes all materials, snacks, beverages, and a 20% discount off of everything in our shop!
