A PLAYFUL WAY TO LEARN SERIOUS SKILLS! This is for ALL levels! It is great for beginners because you will learn simple techniques in small chunks. For the more advanced watercolorists, you will be challenged to take these techniques to a new level of creativity!
Each month a new watercolor technique or challenge will be introduced in a 1 hour live lesson on Zoom.
Each class is on a THURSDAY from 6:00 – 7:00 pm.
From the comfort of your own home, you will watch a demo, have a chance to ask questions and then get started on your painting. Two weeks (or so) later, we will meet again on Zoom, 6:00 – 7:00 pm, to review your paintings, get personalized feedback and ask further questions.
