Ready to move your watercolor skills to the next level? If you’ve got the basics down, and are ready to work more independently, then this class is for you. Identify your creative goals. Strengthen techniques, compositional planning, problem-solving skills, idea exploration. Learn to get going and keep going with your emerging style. There’ll be focused painting time, mini demos as needed, and custom feedback. Bring a watercolor in progress, or photos and/or sketches for one you’re ready to start. Connect with other intermediate-level artists who want to build beyond watercolor basics. Benefit from mentoring that supports your strengths and individual style. You’ll learn more about how you want to paint, but more importantly, why.
Beginning skills will not be taught. If you’re not sure this is a fit, just ask. We’ll help place you appropriately.
