Students in Steve Halem’s painting I class at High School West are learning how to use watercolors. The students are working on creating basic forms, cubes, spheres and cylinders. The artists are using different washes to control the watercolors as they practice the different forms. In this introductory course, students learn to apply elements of design in developing original paintings on various surfaces and stretched canvas in the areas of still life, abstract works, portraits, and landscapes. Students will learn color theory as applied to paint and work with acrylics, watercolors and various other media.
