What you'll learn in this watercolor class:

Capture the beauty of the world around you in a loose and fluid style using watercolors! 

In this course, we will focus on drawing for watercolor, color mixing, brush work and critique. Explore how to find the perfect subject to paint, techniques for better composition, editing tips, how to manage the amount of time it takes to paint your piece, and how to apply "the finishing touches."

Students will receive positive feedback and lots of 1-on-1 guidance from the instructor. You'll walk away with confidence and a greater understanding of how to create beautiful paintings in the watercolor medium.

All skill levels are welcome!
