The mouth atomizer is a device that is used to spray watercolor paint, ink, or other liquids evenly over a surface. Its traditional, non-aerosol way to apply paint, which functions like an airbrush powered by your breath. The atomizing technique creates an atmospheric effect that is difficult to achieve with a brush. It is also used to add texture to foregrounds and buildings, as well as create entire paintings in an impressionistic pointillist style.

Students will create a painting by masking and spraying colors onto watercolor paper. After an instructor discussion about value choices and color choices, students will embark on an artistic journey using a unique painting tool.

Students are welcome to bring their own reference material or choose from the instructor's images.
