Paint vibrant watercolors with confidence! The emphasis for this class will be on learning the basic watercolor techniques for successful watercolor painting. The former student will have the opportunity to develop more confidence by perfecting their current skill level, while the more experienced student will explore their personal style.

Class exercises include learning about materials, color mixing, color theory, and watercolor techniques. Demonstrations, group critiques, and independent exercises will further enhance your learning experience. No prior painting experience is necessary. All skill levels are welcomed.
