Water Color Classes with Nancy Graham

Nancy is a graduate of the Design Department at UC Davis and holds a secondary teaching credential in Art and English.  Unfortunately, her teaching career was brief due to moving about for her husband’s career, and soon thereafter she was busy raising twin boys.  Her desire for painting in oils and acrylics, which was also encouraged by her artist mother, had to take a backseat in those early years and it wasn’t until 4 ½ years ago that the interest was rekindled, but his time watercolor became her passion. 


She has studied with two instructors in the Grants Pass area and signs up for every workshop that scheduling will permit.   Her paintings have taken many first place ribbons and People’s Choice awards in local studio shows as well as the Josephine County Fair.    She is a Past President of the Josephine County Artists Association, a member of the Rogue Gallery, the Grants Pass Museum of art and the Southern Oregon Society of Artists.  Eager to share her watercolor  passion with others , she looks forward to working with the folks at The Artist Attic to bring affordable, interesting and challenging classes to the Southern Rogue Valley. 


Beginning Students: Beginning students will learn the fundamentals of art theory through the use of basics watercolor techniques and will be instructed in developing composition, texture, drama through the use of strong value gradations, and color mixing. Projects will include paintings of florals, still lifes, animals, landscapes and nature studies. The basic designs for all works will be provided in class. This class is offered to those who have never been exposed to watercolors and have had little art instruction and little or no experience painting in any other medium. a list of suggested materials will be provided prior to the first class or a low cost starter kit may be purchased. 


Intermediate Students: The class for intermediate students is designed for those who have had some basic watercolor instruction and are ready to begin composing their own paintings with sample sketches and use of color, samples of compositions from which to work, and a gentle critique of the students' progress at the end of each class. The goals is to help students expand their watercolor instruction through on-going projects, yet allowing the students to create original works. A list of suggested supplies will be provided prior to the first class.

Acrylic Classes: As a professional artist, I will teach you all that I know! Since all students will be at different levels, I want to make sure that students have an understanding of color theory. So if you have not ever made a color wheel, that will be a basic beginning project. I want to make sure that students understand the acrylic medium, so exploration of acrylics will happen with teacher assigned projects. Students May also begin painting their own ideas and subject matter which they are interested in and I am there to help guide through critique and/or demonstration. All Classes are on-going, so you may jump in at any time!


Classes are offered Tuesday & Wednesday evenings 6:00 - 8:00 pm. Cost of the class is $15.
