Join us for a relaxing evening of painting along with artist Megan Watters. We'll be painting the cactus image posted here together, and the materials you'll need are pictured and noted below!
- Canvas, Posterboard, or Paper - Canvas is definitely easiest and sturdiest, but I get that we are doing this from home! Feel free to use paper, but note the heavier the better. If you use paper, tape it down to a piece of cardboard or foam board so that it does not warp too much or move around.
- Brushes - I will be using a bigger brush (about 1") and a smaller brush (about 1/8"). See the photo below. We will make due with what we have, of course!
- Water: in a jar or cup. You can always wash it.
- Paint: I will be using orange, yellow, dark green, white, light green, pink, dark blue. If you don't have those colors, you can use others! If you are struggling with color choices, let me know!
- Plate or Take-out Container: for your palette!
- Paper towels
- Apron or old T-shirt - juuuuuust in case you get crazy
- A beverage of your choice :)
A few guidelines:
- Make sure you have Zoom downloaded on your computer or phone. I will be sharing my screen with you so that you can see me and see a top view of the painting we will work on.
- I would love to see your beautiful faces! We can chat a little bit in the beginning and at the end, but generally we will have microphones muted unless you have questions. This way, you can listen to music and get rowdy without it being too echo-y for the other painters.
