Offered: One Sunday Workshop: October 8, 2pm to 6pm

Instructor: Toaa Dallo

Location: Santa Cruz Art League

Water is one of the most wonderful things to paint, with a fantastic variety of effects and colors. This fun one-day painting session is a deep dive into this popular subject for art.

This class is for everyone — from beginners who want help getting started, to experienced artists looking to refine their skills. Water scenes are a great lesson in perspective, light source, color theory, value and contrast. We will explore key issues of painting and art-making, including composition, brushwork, style, and storytelling — with an emphasis on fun.

You can use acrylics, oils, watercolors, pastels — whatever you like. Toaa will have lots of interesting waterscapes for you to choose from, or you can bring your own.

Toaa will demonstrate and explain methods and techniques for the group, and everyone will receive individual attention and guidance also.
