FROM LIVE OAKS TO

PALMETTOS: Watercolor Studio

with Alex Sharma
 

WHEN: Fridays (1 - 4pm)

November 25, December 2, 9, 16, 2022

WHERE: Art League Academy
(Located South-Island at 106 Cordillo Pkwy)
 
 
 

The Low Country abounds with trees in fabulous forms, shapes and variations. Freedom of expression and use of brush to create shapes, texture and movement is key - whether we desire a realistic or abstract appearance of our subject. 

This studio course will focus on a loose approach to obtaining "the look" we seek.  Spontaneity of method to obtain the colors, rhythmic form and identifying shape, will be achieved through class demonstrations and technique exercises. 

Each class begins with a demonstration of a different technique or method of brush position, movement and rhythm to achieve fluid, pulled-together form.
