Join watercolorist and urban sketcher Timothy Kitz in short mini series. A 4-week immersive watercolor course, open to all levels with drop-ins welcome.
Cost: $110.00 + $20 material fee – Drop-in participation is available for $35, cash only. (please bring exact change!) Call (310) 458-2239 to confirm drop-in availability if you are not bringing your own rig. Enroll online using the tickets link.
10am-1pm Sundays 11/26, 12/3, 12/10 & 12/17.
Classes feature in-depth watercolor instruction with an emphasis on representational scene painting and “en plein air” techniques, as well as delvings into the artistic legacy of watercolor practice. Timothy conveys an appreciation for this unique medium, its fluidity, spontaneity, simplicity of form and the complexities of proper application. Exterior and interior scenes and lighting will be addressed and the gorgeous views framed by the Art Lab’s picture windows overlooking the ocean will provide ongoing inspiration.
All basic materials are provided, but students are encouraged to bring their own brushes, palettes and nontoxic colors.
