Capturing the Landscape in Watercolor
Take a creative journey to learn to paint vibrant, expressive landscape paintings.

Students will learn to simplify, edit and rearrange using the elements of design to create effective compositions. This class is for artists with some watercolor experience. No basic skills will be taught; studio class. Designed for adults only.
Eight Fridays starting September 9th from 9:30 a.m. to noon. No class October 14th.
