    In this class, students will explore the fundamentals of painting water (lakes, streams and ponds) capturing its colorful and reflective qualities.  Utilizing a limited palette and with an emphasis on shapes, values, edges and color, students will gain confidence while creating vivid and dynamic works of art. Students will receive individual instruction, and will benefit from demonstrations, group critiques, and lectures on the water as a favorite subject of painters from the past to the present.
