For watercolor artist Eric Yi Lin, painting is a lifelong journey, during which the artist develops a respect and understanding of the medium that leads to enjoyment and success. Eric’s goal as an instructor is to be part of that journey, helping you to work with less frustration, more understanding, and greater success.

The two sessions of this workshop will focus on establishing and strengthening these critical aspects of your relationship with watercolor. You will explore this wonderful medium with exercises, painting demonstrations, and critiques, interpreting different subjects as you advance through the material.

Session 1 will emphasize watercolor concepts, theory, technique, and fundamental drawing and is intended for students at the advanced beginner level and above. 

Session 2 will cover more intermediate and advanced concepts such as subject matter, composition, and visual language. It will be appropriate for students at an intermediate level or above. Students are welcome to sign up for both sessions.
