Learn a new technique of painting called watercolor batik! Watercolor batik is the process of using traditional watercolor paint and wax to create unique and beautiful batik-style paintings on Japanese rice paper. This process is similar to the age old technique where melted wax is applied to fabric as a resist and then the fabric is dipped in dye.
This class is suitable for both beginner and experienced painters with little or no watercolor experience. Artists will create a 12x16” batik painting in the class.
Japanese Rice Paper- Ginwashi or Unryu (1 sheet)

Watercolor paints. Less is more. At least one of each primary color.

Drawing supplies. A 3b or 4b pencil. Kneaded eraser.
Surface to put the painting on. This can be foamcore, gator board, plexiglass, or wood panel.
Reference photographs will be provided for your drawings, but you are welcome to bring a high contrast photograph or line drawing of your own to transfer to the rice paper.
