Workshop 1811


Intro to Watercolor Landscape Painting


In this course students will learn how to draw a realistic landscape from a photograph and then paint it using watercolor paints. Students will learn the basic drawing skills and the principles of color theory, and apply them in order to create accurately rendered landscape painting. The course is designed to teach absolute beginners how to draw and paint with enough confidence to continue on their own. This course will include instruction on how to integrate the course material into your art curriculum using the new arts standards, using curriculum mapping.

Students may bring a photograph of a landscape, but it must be a photograph that they have taken. No magazine photos or photos that were taken by others. The teacher has a large stash of photographs that she has taken and will make available for use by students if they do not have a suitable photograph for the course. Please make sure that you have another copy of the photograph that you are using, as the photograph will be destroyed in the process of making the painting.
