<< Does anyone teach, specifically, Watercolor? >>

Yes and loved it - taught one semester in ceramics and one semester in
Watercolor and it worked so well. Started the Highschool students out in wet
into wet and let them experiment then I pulled them back and did some color
gradation practice and we then tried tightening things up. When we did the
tight watercolor first they wouldn;t let go later but learning the joeux de
vie (sp?) of wet into wet first started their
imaginations flowing. I was surprised that some of the guys that had been
real
monsters in ceramics were absolutely well behaved and interested in
watercolor.
These "monsters" loved desert scenes from Arizona Highways to look at.for
reference - some even painted sweet floral scenes for their Mothers!!!?

It is a wonderful class to teach - some students told me I took it too
seriously - I
would get so excited about the colors mixing on their own and the beautiful
blooms
that the paint formed naturally. Some felt it too - some didn;t
