Joyful Beginning Watercolor! 
Class Starts March 27th • Registration is Open Now!

This is the class I wish I could have taken, when I began watercolor.

From years of teaching beginning watercolor in person, I know the common challenges and questions that beginners often face. I've refined this class to answer those concerns through a fun, clearly explained, and thorough introduction to watercolor. We will explore the different aspects of watercolor through very easy exercises, and gradually build up to creating a full painting.
