3 Wednesdays: September 13, 20, and 27th from 10am-1pm
Beginner and continuing students welcome!
Ever wish you could find a truly pocket-sized watercolor kit that is always with you when inspiration strikes? Even if you’ve never picked up a brush and pen this road-tested approach starts you on a creative journey with portable materials and a mindset to match. We’ll begin in the studio with some basics, and then head out to sketch on location. Instructor demos, expert tips, and a little practice will have you creating pint-sized keepsakes close to home or far away. Dress with the weather in mind, wear comfortable walking shoes, and bring a sense of humor.
We will be in touch via email with a materials list and additional class details in the days leading up to the class.
Saint Paul artist and writer Tara Sweeney has been creating with pocket-sized watercolor supplies for nearly forty years. “Close to Home: Sketching a Minnesota Year,” is her debut collection of illustrated creative nonfiction featuring local people, places and things. She retires April 2017 after 25 years of teaching drawing and painting for Augsburg College where she designed and led 10 travel-sketching programs. You’ll find her sketching anywhere curiosity leads her.
