Learn the basic principles of watercolor with a hands on three hour class taught by architect John P. Margolis, AIA. He will discuss the merits of certain kinds of paper, watercolor brushes, practical applications of watercolor paint including varying wash techniques, color mixing and paint selections. Students will need to bring the listed materials to class, and will be encouraged to try wash technique, and generate a color chart for future reference. This class is intended to help students become acquainted with watercolor as medium for the first time, or as a refresher course if they have had limited experience.
Please note: All students are welcome. However, students with limited watercolor experience who are planning to attend Thomas Schaller’s Advanced Watercolor class on October 27 are encouraged to enroll in this class.

John Margolis received his Bachelors Degree with a Major in Architecture from Washington University in St. Louis, and later his Masters of Architecture from the University of California, Berkeley in 1986. He pursued his lifelong passion for architecture and urban design during his tenure at numerous prestigious firms including Skidmore Owings & Merrill and Shepley, Bulfinch, Richardson & Abbott. But his primary interest has always been residential architecture and particularly the design of the built form and the surrounding landscape as a seamless unity. This prompted his Masters thesis planning and design study: The Villa and the Garden - Suburbia Reexamined at the Carolands Mansion in Hillsborough, California.
John joined Evens Architecture, a KAA Design Company in 2014 after maintaining his own practice Margolis, Incorporated for over twenty years on the affluent Gold Coast north of Boston. There he designed many varied residential designs - predominantly in the traditional vernacular, typical of the grand estates built over a century earlier. His passion for classical and traditional architecture led him to the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art (ICAA) where he served as New England Chapter President for five consecutive years. He is currently the Vice-President of the ICAA Southern California Chapter and an ICAA Fellow.
