Our experienced instructor will guide you through the process step-by-step, so even if you’ve never picked up a paintbrush before, you’ll be able to create beautiful watercolor paintings.  Throughout the class, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to practice your skills, and our instructor will be there to offer guidance and feedback. You’ll also have the chance to experiment with different styles and subject matter, whether that’s still life, landscapes, or abstract compositions.  All materials will be provided, including high-quality watercolor paints, brushes, and paper. Just bring your creativity and a willingness to learn!
