About the Instructor (you can view my Teaching Resume here)
Felicia Follum is a watercolor artist and graphic designer. Her work often focuses on cultural diversity, social issues or the mixing of cultures. Her watercolor paintings can be recognized by their bright colors, and bold textures.
Felicia recently moved to the Tri-Cities from Laramie, Wyoming and is excited to become a part of the arts community here.
Though not a traditional art teacher Felicia has experience teaching art to a wide variety of students including at risk teens, adults with disabilities, and young children in the favelas of Brazil as well as women and children in a small village in Haiti. She absolutely loves sharing art with people in a variety of ways.
She is looking forward to meeting you in her next class.
Beginners Watercolor Workshop
This workshop will cover basic watercolor techniques, supplies, and color mixing. We will also discus how watercolor is different from non-water mediums and ways to use this to our advantage so we can resist the urge to fight against it.
“I have a love for bright colors so of course we will discuss some strategies for achieving bright and vivid colors.”
Optional homework will be given to offer the chance to reinforce what we practiced during the workshop and to encourage some review throughout the week.
Supplies – Paper, Paint, Brushes, Other
2 – 5 full sheets watercolor paper
I prefer cold press (if you want to buy a pack it will be cheaper and you could even sell or trade sheets to other students). You may want to try hot or course paper as well.
You can purchase a pre-made set of basic colors in tubes. I would recommend this and they can be found at Michaels. If you can’t find one you can purchase individual tubes.
Student grade watercolor tubes of paint. Minimum palate
Yellow (Lemon Yellow or Cadmium Yellow)
Red (Cadmium Red)
Blue (Prussian Blue)
White (Chinese White)
Brown (Raw Sienna and Burnt Sienna)
Other colors to finish off your basic palate
We will talk more about my favorite colors and how I use them. This will help you know what colors you want to upgrade in your own palate.
Tray for paint
Any colors of paint that you would like…I didn’t forget black or Paynes Gray. I don’t use them and you won’t in my class either.
Black ink – waterproof and/or non-waterproof and dipable ink pens and nibs
Salt packets from fast food places
Resources for drawing
1 small piece of fabric
1 magazine page and one other item of your choice (cartoon, fast food wrapper, band-aid, children’s sticker, etc.)
All should be able to be cut, torn, taped etc (not precious only copy of your grandmother’s wedding photo).
