Self Help Painters

We want to share some photos taken by Suzanne Galli Koenen at the Wednesday, April 4th, gathering of the Self Help Painters, a Saint Louis Watercolor Society sponsored program.  You can see the camaraderie the members enjoy and why this has become so popular.  The Fall 2018 session is already full, but watch for announcements of future sessions and contact David P. Anderson if you would like to participate.
