Watercolor on Aqua Board

Watercolor on Aqua Board

Sunday, October 16
10 am - 3 pm

Open up new possibilities with your watercolors by painting on Ampersand’s Aqua Board panels. Once complete, these paintings can then be sealed for protection, using either a cold wax or spray varnish, and framed without glass. In this class, students will understand how to prep the boards before painting, learn how easy it is to fix problem areas, how to keep washes smooth, and adding layers and values. A working knowledge of watercolors is preferred.
