We will be letting go, taking risks, and trusting the process. You will be introduced to various water media (watercolor paint, water-soluble crayons and pencils, and graphite), using basic drawing techniques to push and pull your imagery and layer the content. Then, we will add collage elements, stencils, tape, and even deconstruction. You will focus on pattern, image, and color. Bring an open mind, your willingness to experiment, and items of what inspires you (photos, magazine pictures, sketchbook, memories).
