Liv’s next series of watercolor classes, Come to the Dark Side, will focus on the principles of working from dark to light in the unusual medium of watercolor. In this five week class students will expand their creative understanding of this medium to dramatic effect.

Guided by Liv Drahos’ extensive experience in teaching both drawing and watercolor painting, participants will learn elements of design, composition and color theory. Students will experiment with the new Legion Black 140# Watercolor paper using gouache, granulating, opaque and shimmering watercolor paints and more for stunning effects!

Come to the dark side and experience some exciting results!
