Here at UConn's Pre-College Summer, we encourage students to indulge in their passions and channel their creativity. Through our Watercolor course, students have the opportunity to explore such a versatile medium and in turn, cultivate their own artistry.
Watercolor is a popular medium for professional artists and illustrators. Historically, the scale of watercolors has ranged from the miniature to the monumental, and the portability of watercolor has made it the favored medium for travelers.
Within this one-week course, students explore a number of techniques and styles created with both transparent and opaque watercolor, also known as gouache.
Supplies for this course will be provided.
