Debbie Teeter – Continuing Watercolor
3 sessions
Wednesdays:  December 7, 14, 21
10:00am – 12:00pm
Cost:  $90 non-members/$75 members
Class maximum:  8

This class is for those who have had “basic training” in watercolor and a working knowledge of color mixing, value and washes.  Continue to work with simple subject matter to further develop your painting skills, compositional strategies or creative use of color.

Supply list:

  • Tube watercolors. No black or white necessary.
  • Palette or mixing tray, preferably a large covered one with paint wells around the perimeter. A white plate can also be used for mixing, or even a clear plastic take-out lid.
  • Watercolor brushes, both flats and rounds. A ¾” to 1” flat or angled brush, plus some rounds in sizes #8 or #10, #5 or #6, and #2, #3 or #4 are a good start.   Watercolor brushes can be natural hair or synthetic.  Multi-media brushes are fine; just avoid the really stiff bristled brushes that are only suitable for oils or acrylics.
  • Cold press watercolor paper (preferably cotton) 9” X 12” or 11” X 14”, 140# You can bring a tablet or block or purchase a large sheet which can be cut up as needed.
  • A drawing board larger than your paper unless you are working on a block of WC paper.
  • Masking tape, preferably (blue) painter’s tape (3/4”)
  • An old toothbrush
  • Xacto knife
  • Your sketchbook (or a pad for note-taking & experimenting), pencil and eraser. If purchasing a new sketchbook, aim for 65 lb or heavier paper, so it can handle some wetness
  • Smock or apron is recommended

Since moving to Portland in the late 1980s, I have taught beginning through advanced high school art classes in the Forest Grove and Beaverton School Districts, and art instruction methods to prospective elementary educators at the University of Portland Member, Watercolor Society of Oregon
