Bring your coffee, a good attitude, and have fun exploring this innovative approach to learning painting!

This virtual workshop will not only focus on the fundamentals of watercolor painting but on good design as well. Students will talk about how to simplify compositions by editing out unwanted clutter, focusing on large shapes and abbreviated values. The course will then focus on various components and aspects of painting watercolors: i.e. differences in brushes, papers, paint quality, as well as brush manipulation, washes, splattering, dropping, and dry brushing. Students will explore when, where, and how to appropriately use each tool and technique.

Soft-spoken in his critical analysis of each student's work, Spencer builds student confidence by pointing out the strengths and weaknesses in each piece and by offering suggestions for improvement.

Be prepared to complete one painting over the course of each three-hour virtual session.

Cancellation & Class Policies

When Public Schools of Petoskey are closed due to inclement weather, CTAC-Petoskey classes are cancelled. We will do our best to provide a make-up opportunity for the missed class. Refunds will not be given if the student is unable to attend the rescheduled session of class. Workshops and one-time classes will be handled on a per-class basis. School of Ballet students are asked to make up the missed class in an alternate session approved by their instructor.

Minimum Enrollment
Crooked Tree Arts Center reserves the right to cancel any class that does not meet its minimum student enrollment prior to the first class session. If a class is cancelled by CTAC for lack of enrollment, CTAC will offer a full refund to the student in the manner in which tuition was paid.  (Cash payments will be refunded by check.)
