Inermediate to advanced watercolor techniques

In this creative and informative class, Joan Wykis will show and assist students from the beginning to the end of painting a vibrant fresh and rich looking Watercolor Batik on Rice paper. It is a process using an electric skillet, special rice papers, watercolors, canning wax and an iron. The information in this course is a combination of design, line, color and reserving whites and lights. The technical information shared begins with transferring a drawing onto the rice paper and keeping the process manageable

Materials provided by instructor included at no cost to participants: waterproof pens, foam boards, inks, and rice paper
(Waterproof pens are only on loan for duration of class)

Students will be charged at cost for an 16 X 20 inch or 12 x 12 canvas or you may bring your own as well

Materials from PARTICIPANTS

· Paper for drawing, pencil (#2), eraser

· Your regular watercolors and brushes

· Old throwaway brushes for applying wax. I will have some for you as well

· Paper towels/ clean cloth towel or rag

· Newspapers (Sunday edition probably enough)

· Masking Tape, scissors, rulers, water buckets

Reference Material

You will work from your own photos or images. Please keep in mind that a composition with a simple design is best. One animal, a simple group of flowers or a figurative drawing with just one person would be best. ** Due to the complexity of this process I will be advising you before class (via Phone) and will assist you up to a month on Tuesday morning during open studio for the completion of your work.

(Please contact me the week before class for specific instructions re: drawing and size of canvas)
