This foundation-building course is for those who have always wanted to paint in watercolor and for those who feel that they are struggling with the medium. The instructor will offer an introductory lecture on color and a number of demonstrations, and students will have plenty of time for hands-on practice. The course will allow time for participants to experience as many techniques as possible, to practice and build their skills, and to ask plenty of questions. A supply list will be sent to students prior to the first class.

Elizabeth Ellison is a professional artist with a gallery and studio in Bryson City, N.C. She is noted for depicting the varied wildflowers, animals, and landscapes of the region.
