Watercolor Sketching Class- Seattle!

Tuesdays, 9:30 am-12:30 pm
Classes held at Daniel Smith Seattle store  


Discover how fun it is to mix sketching and watercolor together! Great for traveling, visiting your favorite cafe, or working at home. I will show you many different approaches to using pen and watercolor. Learn how to use perspective, color, texture, shading and composition to create paintings you love. You may drop-in for a single class, take a 4 week session, or attend it as an ongoing class where you can come for weekly inspiration and assistance. Each week focuses on a different aspect or technique of watercolor sketching.I have a very understanding and supportive approach. Classes will begin with a demo of the week's topic, followed by painting and individual consultations. We have a lot of fun in class!

No art experience is needed for this class. All levels welcome.
