Watercolor Batik combines a familiar medium, watercolor, with a less familiar one, batik. And the combination is magic! Experience this art form for yourself on Sat., July 13, from 10am - 2pm.

In this intermediate watercolor batik we will create an image from photo source. Bring an 8 x 10 photo or a drawing if you want. Simple images with good contrast work the best. I will have photos with me that you can work from as well. We will experiment with color and wax to build the image, first painting the lightest areas, protecting them with wax, and continuing to paint with darker colors. You don't need to be able to draw - we will be tracing! The basic watercolor batik class would be helpful to take first but not necessary. All materials supplied. Ages 14 and up if accompanied by an adult who is also attending the class.

Price is $53 plus $10 supplies.
