Discover the joys of watercolor painting in this introductory course. You will learn, through demonstrations, basic techniques—tools, color, composition, and paint application—and what materials you need as you work on developing your inner artistic talent.

Students will also receive individual attention as they create beautiful watercolor paintings from the photographs they bring.

Although this is a beginner’s class, intermediate students are welcome, if they wish to build on basic skills to develop a personal style and direction.

A list of basic supplies will be sent to students before the first session.
