Course Description

If you have always thought it would be wonderful to paint, but you have never tried or never had real success, this is the opportunity to learn. This active, hands-on course offers highly individualized instruction. Every step and technique will be demonstrated as we work together to complete a ready-to-frame watercolor painting. Relax; it's going to be fun! The painting, Splatter Grapes, is an exciting mix of wild washes and careful details. It will force you to paint loosely and teach you how to mix unfriendly colors while avoiding muddiness. I have been told, "I will be your first student to fail," but that has not happened once.  Active Participation
