Watercolor Weekend ~ Capture Valley Scenery with the Yosemite Conservancy

June brings bright colors and dynamic light to Yosemite Valley: Late-spring wildflowers bloom in the meadows, sunlight glints off the rippling Merced River, green leaves and vibrant bird feathers brighten tree branches. As spring transitions to summer, join professional artist Steve Curl to spend a long weekend capturing the park’s seasonal scenery in watercolor.

Over the course of three days, you’ll sharpen your artistic skills, as you practice creating a balanced composition, capturing shifting lights and shadows, and using layers of color to build a scene. You’ll end the weekend with a fresh perspective on Yosemite, fresh artwork to take home, and a new suite of tips and techniques to draw on as you continue exploring the world of watercolor.
