The class is designed to teach students how to paint watercolor on yupo paper in both nonobjective and impressionistic designs. The students will paint/pour watercolor on Yupo, then decide on the design (figurative, landscape, non objective). Students will learn the techniques of texturing, printing, adding and subtracting. The goal is to discover the numerous possibilities of how to use yupo paper to complete a design of your choice, and to have fun in the process!
