Watercolor for Beginners with Coco Connolly
Everwood Farmstead Foundation is proud to present the Artist Workshop "Watercolor for Beginners" with Coco Connolly on Saturday, August 20th, 2022 from 10 am - 3:00 pm!

Join Coco Connolly and explore the basics of painting with watercolor through storytelling,
demonstration and hands on exercises.The course will begin with a discussion of the basics of color and different kinds of paper, paint and brushes followed by an introduction to three basic watercolor techniques: gradated wash, wet on wet, and dry-brush. Throughout the course, Coco will focus on the importance of silencing your inner critic and painting with confidence. Class size is limited to 15 participants.

Minneapolis painter Coco Connolly specializes in watercolor. Her works describe her environment, the landscape, and people around her. Her style blends precise line work and impressionistic flowing watercolors. Her landscape studies dwell on the atmospheric qualities of the
prairies and farmland in the Midwest, while her botanical works are opportunities for meditative reflection. A lifetime of dance training also fuels her interest in painting people.

The price for this Workshop is $70 a person.

Participants should bring:
* Blick Golden Taklon Brushes (#4 round, #8 round, #12 round, and a 1 inch flat)
* Mijello Fusion Airtight/Leakproof Palette
* Sketchbook Strathmore 500 series Mixed Media paper 7.5 x 9.75 Art Journal
* Pad of Arches Watercolor 9x12 140# cold press paper
* Picnic lunch
* Comfortable clothes and sensible shoes based on the weather

Coco has graciously agreed to provide paint for all participants. If you wish to invest in your own paint, Coco suggests that you purchase professional grade tube watercolor (she prefers M. Graham or Daniel Smith brands). Daniel Smith has a good starter kit of 6 basic colors (Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolor - Essentials Set, 5 ml Tube). For all these supplies, Coco believes that Dick Blick has the best prices.
