Create your own zoo of imaginary creatures from random watercolor marks!

This is one of my favorite classes to teach, as all the animals created are so unique and fun.

We will draw from life, from photos, and from our imaginations. Then you’ll learn no-fail watercolor tricks to create a series of your own imaginary creatures on paper. You’ll put the finishing touches on with pen, colored pencil, marker, collage, or whatever else the piece “needs.”

Also in each lesson “real” drawing exercises to help imbue personality and life into your imaginary animals.

Each lesson day you will receive a worksheet assignment, a drawing assignment, and a painting assignment.

Then, what to do with them? Besides framing, there will be a bonus video with holiday gift ideas of what to do with your unique creations.

Take this class if you love animals, want to learn more about watercolor and layering mixed-media, or just want to explore the “random” and “play” factor in drawing and painting.
