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.
