About this Event

NEW! A beginner's watercolor workshop.

Here, you'll become better acquainted with a few key concepts that will make working in the watercolor medium so much easier. These pointers will remove a lot of the stumbling blocks for a beginner so you can more easily begin to create and paint. Key tips covered are the paints (brands, pan vs. tube; quality), palettes (why mixing area is so important), brushes (choosing types, brands, proper handling and care) and the best choices in watercolor papers.

This class will give you the confidence to begin to explore more of the watercolor world, or make your participation in our Nature Journaling with Watercolor classes a better experience!
