Events & Classes


Years ago when I was learning to paint in watercolor I realized that there were many wonderful watercolor painters who could paint but did not know how to teach. There are many books and videos on the web, and certainly you can learn from then, but watercolor is a medium that is a process to learn in order to paint successfully. After taking workshops and classes from many artists I learned what works and what doesn’t. What I have put together is a comprehensive approach I call the “building blocks” of watercolor. I have been teaching watercolor for the past 10 years, and have found a real joy in seeing my students enjoy and grow in their new found art. I keep my classes small, no more than 6 students, so there is a lot of individual attention.

I teach two sessions per year: Fall session; Late August - Mid November
Winter/Spring: January - mid May


Water color I

This class will provide instruction in basic watercolor techniques through step by step demonstrations and one on one instruction. Each week I will do different projects to develop your skills to enjoy this beautiful, expressive medium. no experience is required. The emphasis is on fun.

Tuesday morning, 10 -1pm (beginner watercolor)
Tuesday afternoon, 2 - 5pm (for students with some previous experience in watercolor)

Water color II

This class is for students who have taken Watercolor I or feel comfortable in the medium.  This class further explores technique, composition and perspective, and use of color and value. Working from photos and life, I teach by doing step by step demos which the students follow.  I also work on drawing skills. The goal is to develop into doing independent art projects.  Whenever possible I teach plein air painting outside at different locations.
