Cape Cod is famous for its visiting whale population, come learn how to draw and paint these gentle giants of the sea. The first part of the workshop will focus on capturing their basic shapes, unique characteristics, and personalities. In the second part we will transfer your favorite drawing to watercolor paper and use mixed-media techniques to create a beautiful, full-color painting! Students will be able to try a variety of mediums and learn how they work in combination with one another. No drawing or painting experience required.
These workshops are geared towards adults, but can be enjoyed and joined by older children/teens (recommended age 10 and up). We encourage parent/child duos!
