Clouds: An Exploration of Light and Color

Explore the space between realistic and abstract watercolor painting using clouds as your subject. Clouds at sunrise and sunset can seem like abstract compositions of pure color. Learn to translate their values and colors in loose washes of watercolor, working from light to dark and controlling pigments to evoke strong light and shadows and warm and cool tones.

All supplies are included, and your ticket includes access to the museum. Preregistration is required.
