“Wonder is the beginning of wisdom” – Socrates
All art forms, painting, creativity, begins with that moment of wonder. Recognizing these moments and combining them with words creates a deeper meaning that can inspire, heal, and make magic.
In this class, students will learn how to reinvent their paintings through the use of words and watercolor. By weaving words with watercolor, students will go beyond the traditional approach to watercolor moving into something inspiring – something personal. Students will learn how to create strong compositions, strengthen design principals, use playful collage paint acrylic transparently and use words as exciting textural backgrounds. Are you ready to chase wonder?
