Instructor Amy Hibbs
This live, online workshop teaches the creation of a color chart using watercolors, a specialized way of organizing colors on a grid to uncover new color combinations and teach the use of a minimal palette. Using student's own materials, we work in a methodical way that allows for questions and discoveries. Students need a smartphone or computer with streaming capacity and some basic watercolor materials (details below).
Workshop is taught online through Zoom and Canvas. Students will need a computer or smart phone with webcam and microphone, internet and web streaming capacity, and the Zoom application installed to their device. A device to capture images (digital camera, smart phone, or tablet, etc.) is helpful, but not required.
Materials to be purchased by students:
Watercolors: any colors from tubes or pans, minimum 5 colors.
Brushes: flat brush #8-10 OR round size 4-6
Large white palette for color mixing. Can be a white plate or rectangular baking dish.
Lots of water for keeping your brush extra clean between colors. You can use multiple small containers of clean water, or just change one frequently.
Small rag for wiping the brush
Masking tape (optional)
Paper- watercolor paper is best, at least 10x10 inches. Please have your paper prepared with a 5x5 square grid where each square is about 1.5 inches and there is a small gap between squares. Extra paper (scraps are okay) is handy for testing colors.
