Painting Cities, Towns, and Streets in Watercolor with Visiting Artist Roger Whitlock #732

In this workshop, students will learn to capture the many moods of the urban scene. Through a series of small paintings, both “into-the-light” and “down-the-light,” students will focus on creating large, interesting shapes; exciting darks; various kinds of edges; and well-designed focal areas in which color plays a major role. Roger will provide photos of street scenes for his students to use, but also encourages them to bring their own. Prerequisites: Intermediate and advanced painters only. Space is limited. Please phone 572-5650 to register

**Weather update: Due to tropical storms Iselle and Julio, and since we do not yet know the intensity of these weather events, we are taking precautions and have postponed the start date of this class. Please take a look at the new dates below. Mahalo!
