Beginner Watercolor

September 22 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Thursday, repeating until September 29, 2022

If you have always wanted to try your hand at watercolor but been overwhelmed by it, this is the class for you.

Join artist Carl Stoveland and share your love of art and nature with fellow art enthusiasts. Start with the basics, focusing on a new technique and a simple painting each week.

Begin each class with a Nature Walk through the Garden led by the artist. The purpose of the walk is to inspire and give your an opportunity to capture photos with your phone or tablet along the way. The group will then move indoors, where Carl will start with a quick demo topic then assist you in choosing a subject and getting started on your watercolor.

This class is for adults only, and is geared towards the novice watercolor enthusiast. Bring pencils, pens, paints, sketchpad or watercolor pad, (or journal) and your favorite photographic device (i.e., cell phone camera or tablet).
