Upcoming classes/workshop:

Welcome to my watercolor workshops/ classes page. I teach several classes on watercolor (Beginning and Advanced). Classes include daily demonstrations using a variety of subjects and techniques. Class sessions involve the use of color, unique properties of watercolor paints (staining vs. non-staining, layering, etc.) and include non-traditional ways to paint (adding darks first).
