Old Orchard Beach/Saco Adult and Community Education

Outdoor Adventures in Watercolor Section II

with Russel Whitten


Join other students, beginning and beyond, in outdoor excursions to enjoy watercolor painting and artistic camaraderie. Russel will provide training in controlling watercolor media and tonal drawing, re-creating the appearance of nature with the understanding of forms and their surrounding elements. The study of perspective, composition, value, and color will play as our foundation. All levels are welcome. Class location will be discussed weekly. Registration closes at noon on the first day of class.

As of 3/9/22: 3-foot distancing required, masking optional.

Required: Proof of registration, 1 small tube each: Cadmium Yellow, Lemon Yellow, Cobalt Blue, Cerulean Ultramarine, Cadmium Red, and Alizarin; 1 Round #10 watercolor brush, 1 drawing pencil HB basic #2, 1 eraser, 1 light board or piece of cardboard and several sheets of Arches watercolor paper, 140 lb. cold press, a portable watercolor easel and folding chair (optional) (mats. approx. $40-$50).

Russel Whitten, a local artist/teacher, studied at The Art Students League of New York, Heartwood College of Art, and is a member of The Ogunquit Art Association/Barn Gallery. Students love his easy, supportive style.
