Color your world as you learn the beautiful art of watercolor!

Explore your creative side with our new teens-only painting series featuring expert video instruction with Creativebug. During this 3-part, progressive paint-along series, artist-instructor Yao Cheng will take aspiring artists from the beginning fundamentals to intermediate skills as you get hands-on experience with a little in-person assistance as needed. You’ll explore a range of tools and techniques, from blending colors for a unique palette and using your brushes to achieve different effects to applying washes, layering color, creating gradients, and giving your art a sense of depth and movement. All materials (including the usual delicious refreshments) will be provided.

Psst... Watercolor Basics is 3-part series that may build on techniques learned from previous sessions, but feel free to come to just one session, two, or all three!

Yao is a renowned watercolor artist and designer based in Columbus, Ohio. While she has been painting and drawing since the age of 5, her introduction into watercolor began shortly after college from Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) with a BFA in Textiles in 2009.  Her connection to this medium was immediate and it has since defined her painting style and marked the beginning for Yao Cheng Design.

For ages 12–18. Just drop in!
Seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Questions? Call 543-7675 ext. 2001.
