Food Illustration Watercolor Workshop - VIRTUAL @ Alley Pond Environmental Center | New York | United States

Explore your creativity by painting your favorite foods in watercolor! Illustrating the food from your kitchen (or your fantasy meals) can be fun for many reasons. It is therapeutic, creative, and experimental. And you can even create fun wall art for your home while you are at it! In this beginner-friendly class, we’ll explore shape, color, and texture using simple watercolor techniques. We will start with a few basic exercises and quick, simple projects, then move on to create paintings using food from your kitchen or reference photos. Along the way, learn a process for gathering delicious-looking inspiration for artwork. Zoom link will be provided upon registration.
Various supplies needed:
Pencil with eraser
Watercolor paints. You do not need to purchase expensive paints; even a basic watercolor set with primary colors will be great for this class. If you are looking to purchase new paints, I will send along with a list of my preferred budget-friendly paints and other materials.
Watercolor brushes. I will use both larger and smaller round brushes in this class (Sizes 0 to 8), and, but you’re welcome to use what you have!
Watercolor or mixed media paper. (If you need a recommendation, we love Canson XL paper. It is very budget-friendly and comes in various sizes.)
Palette, disposable plate, or take-out container lid for mixing colors
Water cup and paper towels
Food that you would like to paint! Any fresh fruits, vegetables, or herbs you have on hand, or photos of your favorite foods.
