Spring Series: Watercolor Basics

March 29 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Tuesday, repeating until May 3, 2022


Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center is excited to continue a partnership with The Contemporary Austin Art School! Drawing and watercolor classes will be taught in our McDermott Learning Center, a beautifully restored 19th-century carriage house nestled in the gardens.

All levels are welcome. Beginners will be introduced to the watercolor medium using traditional approaches and color theory. Intermediate-level students will advance technique through practice and critiques while also improving composition skills. Demos will include wet-into-wet washes, wet-on-dry washes, and ways to create glowing color like those you see in our gardens and natural areas!

This class will take place in person at the Wildflower Center. Face masks are optional when attending this class. Please review our safety guidelines before your visit.

This class is part of a 7-class series.
Tuesdays, March 22 – May 3
