Art Classes & Workshops

NOTE: Dates shown are the date of the first class meeting. Classes & workshops may multiple meetings days and times, see class description for details.

We recommend completing Watercolor Basics 1 & 2 before taking any other watercolor course. This will help you learn and practice the fundamentals techniques. If Watercolor Basics 1 & 2 are not currently offered, we can do private instruction.

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.
