Words & Watercolors (ages 9 & Up)
Teacher: Mindy Hardwick
10 – 12pm

Let’s explore words and watercolor! In this class, we’ll look at how our words can be combined with watercolor to create a beautiful journal. We’ll explore the natural world to inspire texture, color, shape, and mood. We will layer our watercolor with images and poems that explore who we are as well as the world around us. The class includes a walking trip to Haystack Rock as well as viewing a few of the public art pieces in Cannon Beach. Students will each be given their own 6 x 12, watercolor journal for the class.

Learn to recognize and grow your super powers! Bravery, kindness, the ability to make others laugh, drawing a picture, baking, riding a bike, being kind to animals, recycling, taking time to be by yourself and giving your time to others… These are a few examples of what make us strong and special. Identifying what brings us joy and using it for good is a brave and powerful act! Using visual art and words young artist heroes will encourage each other to be their best self. Our journey will include sharing moments in life when each hero felt powerful and translate this into visual symbols and artwork. Each artist will also create a life-sized painting of themself as the hero to hang as a banner on their wall to inspire and remind them of their power.
