Taught by YAF member and On The Hill Gallery artist Angie Mack, this class offers a fresh approach to watercolor. Students will be introduced to using acrylic ground gesso on watercolor paper to complete exercises focused on the elements of design. Incorporating gesso into watercolor paintings enhances the depth and texture of watercolors and results in a multitude of possibilities for creating beautiful pieces of artwork.
