We’ll be doing watercolor sketching and journaling outside! This highly creative class allows one to loosen up. Initially, we’ll meet at Wild Salamander for demonstration, etc., and then plan to paint in outdoor locations when possible. The remaining classes will be on location unless the weather is uncooperative. Watercolor pencils are optional but are strongly encouraged as they lend themselves to plein air (painting outside) strengthening line, depth, weight, and texture. 

Giving words to one’s painting defines and clarifies them, increasing our visual vocabulary. We become more thoughtful about how/what we want to paint and write. The two mediums enhance each other. The joint process can be detailed, loose and fosters spontaneity and playfulness. The freedom is in the process, not the outcome. Student’s decide if they want to write about the location, work in stream of consciousness, simply convey thoughts and feelings or write poetry.
