March 2/April 2019 Watercolor classes in all levels and times are Trees, Skies, or Water.
I teach all my classes – beginners to advanced – so you can begin with the most basic classes or take the more advanced classes.
The Basic Class is the “Family Class” But beginners are also welcome in the Introduction to Watercolor class as well!
All the classes learn the same techniques, just taught on a level appropriate to the individual learner. As a teacher, I have taught ages 3 to 101 for many years, and I am very good at accessing a students strengths and abilities – from small children to advanced age, and even memory care.
I offer three different types of watercolor classes:
“Little Hands” Children – Ages 4-6 for information about these classes click here: Little Hands Each month we will study a subject. Usually seasonally themed.
“Family Classes” – Ages 7- to adult- These classes are designed for young or new artists, young or old. This class is set up for individuals or a child and accompanying adult. Individual children or adults are welcome to attend, but if an adult accompanies the child the child rate is discounted. Each month we will study a particular subject, often seasonally themed.

Watercolor – Go With the Flow
Beyond the Basics – Plan your painting and execute your artwork like a pro! Beginners are welcome to this class, as we will review skills, but know we won’t spend a lot time on basics. This class is like the Concept to Canvas for Oils and Acrylics as it teaches you the start to end of your finished work. Calendar – Register
Watercolor painting for fun and excitement. Really? Yes! Watercolor painting when worked into water, as watercolor should be, is exhilarating! But “How do you control the water”? Yes, well, that is why we have a class. To answer all your questions and help you learn the best skills, have the most fun, and get your most fabulous results!!! Here is a video introducing how to watercolor paint, that I created .
If you have been trying to figure out what watercolor painting is all about or have never had a watercolor class you may want to start here:
Many people have heard that watercolor painting is “hard” compared to other kinds of painting. No, it isn’t hard. It’s different. Many people are challenged when they try a new media. I have heard very skilled oil painters say “I can’t paint in watercolor”, or very proficient graphite artists say, “I just can’t paint”. Well, if you LOVE the look of watercolor, don’t be intimidated. It is more about the how, than it is the “Talent”.
This class is designed for new watercolor artists. Everything the student needs to learn how to begin and complete a watercolor painting. How to control the paint, how to manipulate the paint in the water for that watercolor effect, and how to use the brush. Where a lot of people are confused is that the brush stroke in watercolor is different. It is all about being prepared with knowledge and skill to achieve the look you want, then it’s EASY!
