(2000 NW Market St, in the upper studio)
Comics are great. Comics with watercolor? Even better. Delve into this popular traditional art form and fiddle with the techniques just right for your zine-making adventures.
Through this class series, students will gain confidence in watercolor techniques and tools to create just the right effects for your ideas. We’ll learn the basics of working with watercolor, using tools you can find in your own home, using resists, and explore color theory to create the right mood for your comics. For you multimedia artists out there, we’ll also workshop how to layer on other mediums such as pen, pencils, gouache, acrylic, and more.
There will be lots of time for play and exploration. At the end of the class, students will create a short comic strip or zine using techniques learned throughout the course.
This class is best suited for those who are interested in watercolor but want to gain confidence and experience. Though it’s not required, students are also recommended to have some experience drawing comics or have ideas for comics they want to make.
Materials and tools are provided and you will receive 15% off art supply sales the day of class.
