This is a watercolor class that will accommodate all levels, from beginners to advanced.  There will be plenty of learning experiences for everyone.  Learn to paint from a lifelong professional artist and illustrator, who can teach you tips and techniques from her years of experience.  Watercolors are not as difficult as you might have been told, once you understand certain principals and methods of the medium.  Your instructor will help you learn the skills that are required for you to begin your creative journey.  Watercolors have unique qualities and spontaneous reactions that are unlike any other medium – they are exciting and a delight to paint with.  Come explore and play with this wonderful medium!

All supplies are provided for the beginning watercolor classes so that you will have the opportunity to work with different products before you purchase for your own studio.
