Botanical Gouache Watercolor Painting with Maria Schoettler
Teacher: Maria Schoettler
Materials: $25 studio fee
We’re thrilled to host Bay Area artist Maria Schoettler for this one-day watercolor immersion! In this class, students will use real flowers as a subject for learning to paint with gouache, Maria’s favorite watercolor paint. Students will get acquainted with the techniques Maria uses to bring flowers to life: color mixing paint to match the hue of the petals, how to control the amount of water to use, the effect of layering paint on the page (and the patience required to do so) and how to pay attention to the flower’s unique character. From there, students will find their personal style and can choose to build compositions with multiple flowers or they can dive deeper into the technique through repetition and experimentation. From this class, students will develop a deeper appreciation of the intricacy of flowers and the joy that comes from capturing that uniqueness.
Students of all experience levels are welcome; feedback is tailored to each student. Students will be sent a materials list for A Open to students 16 & up.
