Exploring with Watercolor Winter 24/ Tue


Griselda Lessard Healy grew up in St. James, Long Island, New York. There she studied still-life and landscape painting with Paul Russotto before moving to Europe and later Canada, where she studied and worked primarily as a musician while never letting her painting work fall far from hand and mind. When Griselda returned to the USA in 1987, her focus moved primarily towards figure painting, sculpture, and drawing. She studied in NYC at the Art Students League with Harvey Dinnerstein and at the National Academy of Design with Mary Beth McKenzie.

Begins Jan 9 | $354| 10 weeks

Open for beginners and for those that already have an established watercolor art practice. Come with some ideas of how or what you like to paint, whether it be pure abstraction, imagined realism, works from life, or a combination. Different approaches will be discussed, and techniques demonstrated, glazing, color washes, dry brush, color mixing, and color relationships to name a few. Compositional options will be explored depending on the vision, and strengths of each student. The Watercolor medium requires experimentation and discovery.  Each student will find their own unique process towards an end result in image making with this beautiful medium.
