If you’ve ever thought to try watercolors or pick up where you left off, and wish for personal attention as you paint, this  class for you. At the outset we will pursue an understanding of materials and tools in order to develop strokes and washes. Using simple shapes and techniques to learn how the brush loads and carries water and pigments, we’ll be feeling the difference of “less is more” and “less is enough”. Students will be able to complete a number of studies and paintings in this eight-week series.  
Years ago I did a thesis on watercolor. I then I traveled for a year outside the US. The images I brought home were watercolor only, no camera at all. This was my medium for decades. Recently my watercolor work has been on silk as well as cold-pressed Arches paper. I will include a silk demo to introduce the silk superflow, and students can opt to give it a try. 
Yes, watercolor painting can be simple, fun, and elegant. Join the RAA for $10, then register for the class. Non-residents please call me for extra details (925) 783 9000. Quality ingredients make all the difference. Please opt for Daniel Smith, Winsor & Newton ProSchminke. One can start with a handful of select pigments and brushes, plus Arches cold-pressed papers. Welcome aboard–see you as spring unfolds for us and goes full bloom!
