(AM)SCRATCHBOARD/WATERCOLOR: COMBINING DRAWING WITH PAINTING ACRYLIC LANDSCAPE: A PAINTERLY APPROACH Instructor: Rick Wheeler Dates: Every Tuesday, January 5 to April 27, 2021 Time: 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM -AND/OR- 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM Fee: $45/3-hour class or a special price of $75 instead of $90, if you register for both a morning and afternoon class on the same day. Scratchboard is fundamentally a drawing medium, popular in the early 1900's for book illustration. Scratchboard makes for some very dramatic black & white renderings, but with this class, the students will discover how adding color - using traditional watercolor - can enhance their drawings. "Painterly" is a term often used among other painters. If one painter calls another artists work, "painterly" it's considered a compliment. The term is used to describe a style of work that allows for visible brushstrokes, thick applications of paint, dry brush, and blocking-in, while incorporating a more generalized, less detailed approach to painting. All of these techniques, and several others will be covered.
