This watercolor session is all about landscapes. Classes will consist of exercises focusing on landscapes and landscape elements: skies, clouds, tress, rocks.

Classes are recorded to watch later. Each week students will be given an “assignment” or a painting project to do on their own to help reinforce and build their skills.
