Intro to Watercolour on Yupo Workshop WITH KAREN BISHOP


6:00 PM – 9:00 PM

$50 + Supply List

Class Limit: 15 Students

Beginners welcome!

In this workshop we will experiment with the flowing effects of watercolour on yupo. Yupo is a super smooth non-absorbent painting surface that suits watercolour pigments beautifully. We will explore how watercolour paint flows to create loose, expressive patterns and shapes, We will also explore how the pigments mix, pushing and pulling each other in unexpected and spectacular ways. Combining this looseness with controlled layering we will achieve exciting and dynamic paintings with colours that are rich and vibrant.
