Classes for Summer!!!

May 17, 2018

Hello my friends! Oh my gosh, how is it already half way through May? I blinked in February and now it’s nearly summer. What the what? I am sure you are already dreaming about all of the art time you want to get in over the next few months. Need a little inspiration to get you started? Well, no worries. I have got you covered!

Watercolor Wanders


Class starts May 28th!!!

I don’t consider myself a traditional artist. I am self taught, which often lends itself to thinking out of the box when it comes to more traditional mediums. I am a mixed media artist so I am always looking for how I can use mediums together. This watercolor class is everything you need to get started painting with watercolors, in a non traditional way. Learn basic watercolor techniques. I will share some of my favorite ways to paint with watercolors. All you need are some watercolors and a sketchbook! Here are some of the techniques covered in this course:

  • Washes
  • Blending of colors
  • Color bleeding
  • Transparent layers
  • Watercolor resists
  • Masking
  • Value

We will be creating a range of landscapes, still life’s and abstract paintings.
