Class Description: If you have always wanted to paint with watercolors, but have been afraid to try, this is the perfect place to start. Geared towards beginners this class provides students the ability to learn several tricks for creating beautiful watercolors even if you have never tried painting before. Each session will begin with a demo of a different watercolor technique followed by time to paint. In a relaxing and safe setting, students will experiment and have fun while learning valuable lessons on color mixing, brush strokes and composition. By the end of 8 weeks you will feel comfortable with basic, and some more advanced, watercolor techniques.
