This class will introduce beginners to drawing and perspective principles needed to compose a watercolor composition using the dry and wet-on-wet approaches. Following the class demonstration, students will work on their own paintings with the guidance of the teacher. The extended time (2:30 - 5:30) will give students time to set up, work, and clean up after each class. Note: the coordinator will send enrolled students a list of required materials (estimated cost $150) prior to the first class. Please notify the A.L.L. office if you do not receive a list of materials at least two weeks before the class starts.

Location C-106
Session 12 weeks 9/13-12/6
Class Limit Limit: 25

Changing roles of women brought about by the women's movement were reflected in Marlo Thomas' 1960s career girl That Girl, Mary Tyler Moore's evolution from ditzy wife in The Dick Van Dyke Show to single career woman in her eponymous show, and Candice Bergen's powerful and controversial Murphy Brown. We will use clips of these and other shows to spark discussion of how men's and women's lives changed through the decades, including, of course, our own!
