Art Classes

*Door will open 10 minutes before the start of class.
 If you arrive after the start time of class, use the door bell at eye level on right side of door.

 Tips and Tricks for beginning Watercolor painters. You will learn about painting wet into wet, wet into dry, masking, adding salt, and more. You will create your own color wheel using only 6 colors. You will never need to buy another tube of paint!

You will come away with new-found confidence!


Join me and let your creativity fly! You can work with whatever supplies you have already. (Sorry, no oil based paints)

As we progress on our journey together, keep in mind that everything you learn in this workshop is a jumping off point, the tip of the ice berg.  Each technique could be explored in depth or combined with other techniques – the choice is yours.  You will want to bring some surfaces to work on a piece that you will finish (or almost) during our time together.

If you have always wanted to develop your drawing skills, or even have no experience, this is the class for you.

Each week you will learn new techniques:

  • Improve your observations skills

  • Understand the importance of placement and proportion

  • Practice shading to get that magic contrast that makes a drawing look so real.


Looking to perfect your drawing skills? Want to learn to use charcoal? Colored pencils? Then this is the class for you
