Online Watercolor Workshop: Petri Dish

A beginner’s quick introduction to watercolor.  We will explore color palettes, cover watercolor basics, and explore mark-making.  In this workshop we will use petri dishes as a subject to get creative with color and line.  We will delve into abstraction while working on a realistic subject. This workshop will cover watercolor basics and show you how to make the most of a simple watercolor set. No experience necessary.


  • watercolor set (any will do, even a Crayola set)
  • watercolor brushes – size 6 round and size 2 round recommended.  We will be painting both large washes as well as fine details
  • watercolor block – Fluid 6″x8″ is recommended.  If you can’t get a watercolor block (which is a pad of paper gummed on multiple sides), please have masking tape available.
