WorkshopSF and SPARC marijuana dispensary are excited to present SPARC UP & PAINT, a special watercolor class to spark your new interest in watercolor painting!! In this class, fine artist Becca Schillinger will teach you how to paint beautiful galaxies, night skies, planets, and deep space using some of her favorite watercolor techniques. You will begin class with a short lesson on color, brushes, painting supplies, and basic painting techniques. You will learn how to use color blending, gradients, and watercolor washes to render night skies, nebulas, and other celestial bodies. You’ll even have the chance to try out some special DIY techniques that use rock salt, acrylic ink, and even a toothbrush to create layers of stars to complete your dynamic deep space imagery. And don’t worry... Becca will be there to guide you, answer questions, and help you paint around any creative road blocks! Each student will leave with at least two completed paintings on cold-pressed archival watercolor paper. This a great opportunity for total beginners and folks with some watercolor experience to space out, get creative, and learn new techniques to produce these beautiful images.
WANNA SEE MORE EXAMPLES? Please check out WorkshopSF’s watercolor Pinterest board for additional space, galaxy, and night sky examples and inspiration imagery similar to what you’ll produce in class.
Supplies Needed: None. All painting supplies will be provided in class.
