Saturday Wash with Robert Leedy: A Six-Week Watercolor Class for Beginner’s & Intermediates

Designed for those of you who have weekday work commitments, this Saturday morning class is a great way to get art and creativity into your weekly schedule. Painting is a very relaxing and intellectually stimulating activity to get your weekend off to a great start!

Join Robert Leedy for an inspiring three hours of watercolor painting each week. Robert will cover the basics including composition & design, brush technique, color theory, value, and color mixing. Students will introduce light into their paintings through the use of transparent layers of color, preserving the white of the paper, and skillful manipulation of negative space. Robert Leedy promises to loosen up your painting with bold color and fluid mark making. You will also walk away refreshed, inspired, and with a new attitude towards the medium of watercolor!

The class is geared for Beginning & Intermediate students. No watercolor experience is necessary though basic drawing skills will be helpful. Robert places a lot of emphasis on individual instruction and also maintains that in addition to his instruction, you will also learn a lot from your fellow classmates.
