Over the course of four classes, learn more advanced techniques in watercolor and drawing including shading, defining values, and creating a focal point in your composition. Gain an understanding of what types of paper to use, as well as how to apply dry and wet media to complete compositions. One class (February 17) takes place in the Museum so that students may enjoy in- gallery drawing while learning more about the Crocker’s collection and the exhibition The Candy Store: Funk, Nut, and Other Art with a Kick. Prior experience with drawing and watercolor is suggested.

Space is limited. Advance Registration required.

February 17 is in person and will take place at the Museum. The Crocker is taking measures to ensure that in-person studio classes can be physically distant while also socially connected. Among other things, we are limiting the number of people in our classes, as well as monitoring and marking the distance between class participants.

Protective face coverings are required of all Musum visitors and class participants over the age of two. For the most up-to-date information regarding Health & Safety protocol at the Museum, please visit this page.
