Adult Beginner Guitar

In this class, you will learn various techniques for drawing accurate landscape scenes and apply texture in a realistic manner.

Watercolor That Comes to Life

October 7-November 11, T, 6-8:30 p.m.
NCTC 117, #5520, $85

Using watercolor supplies and techniques, students will learn to incorporate figures into their paintings. Figures may be animal or human and will be representational. The class will focus on the interaction of the figure in the environment rather than portrait style. Forms will be simple at first and then become more detailed. Students are encouraged to bring their own pictures as reference material. Practicing quick sketching of figures will be a part of the class.

The fee does not include supplies. Upon registration participants will receive a supply list. Please contact JCC North County Center for details.
