All skill levels welcome. Workshops include fundamentals as well as non-traditional techniques designed to inspire playful experimentation.
Sign up for any session or take them all for a sequenced experience.


January 17, Watercolor Rainbow Wreath (10 student maximum)
Whether a wreath or a mandala, it’s a fun way to begin with watercolor paints! Dip brushes and various stamping tools into rainbow hues and create a cheerful expression of color. The foundations of watercolor painting and color mixing are introduced while students experiment and create a patterned circle painting.

January 24, Fanciful Faces (10 student maximum)
Fun and fanciful portraits emerge as students play with watercolor’s “magic” ingredient – water! Beginning guided drawings evolve into individual expressions of emotion and character. Watch water move, seep and bloom resulting in luminous colors and expressive lines and shapes.

January 31, Painted Papers for Cardmaking & Collage (10 student maximum)
Are you a card maker? Do you love collage? This workshop is all about making textured and patterned papers to create a greeting card or small collage. Think: Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, birthday, thank-you cards or gifts. Learn about resists, wet and dry techniques, glazing, blending and more. Try out a variety of papers and share discoveries with classmates. Bring a sense of adventure and playfulness.

February 7, Fuzzy Tree Landscapes (10 student maximum)
What does it take to paint heavenly skies, hazy hills, fuzzy trees and luscious foregrounds? Perspective, wet washes and dry brush are helpful but tissues, bank cards, toothbrushes and paint tube ends help too. Learn some tricks of the trade in painting watercolor landscapes. Enjoy teacher demonstrations and practice your own landscape painting technique.
