October 26 – Fall Watercolors

October 26, 2-3 p.m.

Join us for a one hour fun and relaxing painting experience in the comfort of your own home. This is a live painting event taught by Michigan artist Kate Dupre and will be held live virtually through Zoom. Class will begin with an overview and demonstration of watercolor paints, followed by some time to practice individually. We will work up to a final piece. 

Supplies needed:

  • Watercolor paints. You can use tubed or palette. We will be using a palette. Suggested colors: yellow, orange, red, brown, ochre or light brown, green, white
  • A couple paintbrushes to experiment with. We’ll use flat brush that has about a 1/2” width as well as a small round pointed brush
  • A cup/jar for water
  • Paper towels
  • Plastic paint palette or disposable plate
  • Paper (at least 5×7” in size). Canvas will not work for what we are going for. Watercolor paper is best. We’re using 300lb/140gsm watercolor paper. There are many brands that make this, and it is commonly sold at craft stores or online.
  • Sharpened Pencil.
  • Small tipped Micron or Sharpie pens are optional.
  • Stencil printout

Class level not recommended for children under 10.
