Join a very small circle for a unique creative experience,

taught by a professional teacher and watercolor painter.

  We meet in a beautiful setting in Tucson, Arizona.

Emphasizing demonstrations (including a few short video clips) and practice, this class covers the basics of what a new painter needs to know: the magic of letting water move the paint,  the elements of  composition , color combinations that appeal, various painting techniques: blending, lifting, washes, hard and soft edges, painting wet on wet and wet on dry, the many ways to use your brushes, and creating a small chart of greens that you blend yourself.  Bring your questions and prepare to have a wonderful time. Nothing compares  to the support and sharing of a friendly, instructive circle to enhance and motivate your art experience.
