DeSerres – Saturday, November 21st, 10am-11:30am (Online)


In this class, we’ll learn 12 watercolor techniques by creating a watercolor technique color wheel. You’ll get to explore these techniques in a low pressure, exploratory class.

This class is recommended for beginners. I recommend this class as part of my watercolor landscape series.

Once you sign up, I’ll send you several handouts, notes, and a supply list so you can get ready for our class.

I recommend the following materials for class, but you don’t have to order these exact materials. I recommend pan watercolors instead of tube watercolors because they are a little easier to manage for beginners.

1. Pencil and eraser
2. Watercolor Kit
3. Watercolor Paper
4. 2 Water dishes (with water)
5. Paper or cloth towels for drying your brushes
6. Salt
7. Rubbing Alcohol or hand sanitizer
8. Cotton ball and/or cotton swab
9. Crayons (Pack that includes white)
10. Watercolor brush set

About instructor Lauren deSerres: I use imagery of nature and animals to create stories addressing societal and environmental issues. In my work, I explore how these issues intersect with the human narrative. I use bright, saturated colors made with layers of acrylic paint, pastel, collage, and ink.

Using images of animals and medicinal plants, I weave a story of awakening and rebirth, reflective of my own experience as a woman and an artist in the modern world. My technique consists of many processes and layers, and I believe this helps the viewer to look closely at the work, gradually unveiling hidden nuances and details, both in technique and in the stories I create.

Our world is rapidly changing, and it is only through real self- reflection, discovery and a sense of open-mindedness that we will be able to come together to save it.
