Watercolor: Controlled Chaos
Learning to let go.
Watercolor has a reputation of being hard to control, with precision and detail difficult to attain. In this course, Lowell-based illustrator and painter Ashley Eisenman will help students to “learn to let go” and embrace watercolor painting as expressive, versatile, and fun. Through a varied set of classes, students will gain skills in the fundamentals of watercolor painting and composition, sketching, color mixing and choice, and how to create representational pieces from abstract beginnings. Students will be encouraged to experiment with a variety of subjects including abstract expressions, portraits of humans and animals, and pop-art.
Required materials: Wear a mask, sketchbook, favorite personal brushes or paints, & clothes you don’t mind getting messy, snacks, and something to drink.
*Please inform us in advance of any food allergies.

Due to new health and safety concerns, we ask that students come to class with a mask. We will provide hand sanitizer and wipe down working areas with disinfectant before and after class. Shields and limited class sizes will also be implemented during this time. We ask that if your child or a household family member does not feel well to be open and communicate with us about your child missing class as a precautionary measure. Restaurant rules apply for snacks and drinks... students will be allowed to eat and drink at their work space but must wear masks when traveling through the studio.
We reserve the right to cancel any classes that do not fill.
