This class is intended for beginning, intermediate and advanced students.
Beginning students will start with a series of drawing exercises from the Charles Bargue Drawing Course to develop a foundation of drawing techniques and terminology. Once the basic drawing exercises are completed students will then be encouraged to complete more advanced drawing and painting projects of their favorite subjects.
Intermediate and advanced students will work on more challenging drawing and painting projects that may include drawing from reference photos and still life.
Classes are on going from month to month and you can start at any time however, registration is monthly on the WAL website.
Questions (?) Please contact Tom by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (281)292-4811 with questions for additional information and the materials list.

Avoid the temptation to rush into a local craft store for any old store brand paint/paper/brushes. You'll be disappointed! I buy the majority of my watercolor supplies through Dickblick.com. The listed price ranges are from the Dickblick.com website as of Feb 3rd. You can also checkout Jerry's Artarama, Cheap Joes, or Amazon.· HB Pencil and sharpener· White plastic eraser· Paint Brushes - I highly recommend Black Velvet by Silver Brush. The Susan Louise Moyer Set of 3 Rounds would be a great starting place. Set includes a size 4, 8, and 12 round for $58.66.· Paint - Good quality student level brands include Cotman by Winsor Newton, Grumbacher Academy and Van Gogh. Both Cotman and Van Gogh can be bought in tube sets, 1/2 pan sets, or open stock tubes. Academy doesn't offer pans. Expect to spend $25.00 - $65.00 for paint. The good news is it will last you quite some time!· Cotman 1/2 pan sets of 12-14 colors runs in the $25.00-$35.00 range. Their open stock 8 ml tubes run $3.76 each· Van Gogh 1/2 pan sets of 12 - 18 colors run in the $25.00-$40.00 range.

It is very nice paper for the price! You will need one 9x12 block (15 sheets) for $16.62. You will also need one watercolor sketchbook . Any of the Canson Artist Series Watercolor book, Canson XL, or Strathmore Visual Journal will work. They are all wire bound, and range in price from $8.00 - $15.00· Small spray bottle· 2 cups/jars, etc for holding water· Paper towels, tissues· A couple of small, cheap synthetic brushes for lifting paint and applying masking fluid· Blue painters tape (like Frank's Hot Sauce, I put that * on everything
Techniques in Watercolor with Teri Valentine
Continuing or new students welcomed
If you are an absolute beginner, are coming back after years long hiatus, or are an intermediate wanting to boost your skills, we have a welcoming group for you to join!
Basic information covered and experimentation is a strong point for this class! Start with strengthening skills then add various texture, collage, collagraph and other mixed media techniques.
This is a repeating class with monthly registration...start when you like and credit your fees to the next session.
Four classes are $125 for WAL members, $150 for non-members.. One make up date is included for each session which must be taken 30 days after last scheduled class.
Supplies are not included; see the very basic acrylic supply list below.
For more info contact me at email@example.com
Supplies: This is not a complete list. Your choice of projects and skill level will determine what you will add as we go along.
Paints: All students should bring to class the basics...cadmium red medium, cadmium yellow medium, ultramarine blue, and titanium white. Other colors can be added, or, if you have experience with a preferred palette, by all means, bring those as well! White gesso, and acrylic gel medium are also useful.
Brushes: Again intermediate students probably have some, new painters please get long handled, taklon or nylon. Flats and filberts...an assortment from size 4 to 12...about 6 brushes in all. Don't spend a lot of money, but make sure they do not shed and have a little "snap" to them so they will move your paint.
Painting surfaces: You can use wood or stretched canvas, or even paper meant for acrylics...all up to you! For first timers 11x14 is neither too large or too small, and 12x12 is a close runner up.
Palette paper pad, paper towels, and water containers.
