Learn to paint your favorite plants

Botanical painting is a relaxing, meditative way of working that helps you gain control over watercolor and develop patience with yourself and with the paint.  This practice sharpens your observation skills and opens you up to a whole new understanding of the natural world.  If you love watercolor, learning this technique will help you feel more confident with the medium, even if you normally work in a different style.

This repeatable class will give you a foundation in the basic techniques of contemporary botanical painting, with an emphasis on color, value, and composition.  First-timers will work on simple subjects while practicing basic watercolor technique, and students who are repeating the class will receive individual help with subjects of their choosing.

Drawing is for everyone

If you’ve ever said, “Oh, I can’t draw,” or if you love art and wish you could do what artists do, this class is for you. Drawing is not only for a select few, and it’s not just for professional artists. Drawing is a skill that everyone can learn, and it offers many benefits.

This introductory class combines Yes, You Can Draw Levels One and Two, and includes more practice time

This class will walk you through the basics of learning to draw in a friendly, no-stress manner. Our focus will be on doing, not on perfection. This class will be relaxing, fun, and designed to take the fear out of touching pencil to paper while developing your ability to draw what you see.  No experience necessary, no fears, and no apologies for what you can or can’t do. We’ll start wherever you are.

Prerequisite:  None.
