Event Type

Instructor: Fontaine Jacobs
Class size: 5 to 20
There will be a one-hour lunch break.

This will be a fun, new class for all levels. Yupo is a slick, synthetic paper that has wonderful lifting ability. With watercolor and the use of objects such as Q-tips, plastic embroidery grids, corrugated cardboard, and other tools you will learn to create unusual textures with watercolor on Yupo. You really can’t go wrong. If you don’t like what you have created, simply wipe it back to the white of the paper and start over. So, relax and discover the joys of painting on Yupo.
