The Zen of Watercolor Painting with Donna Fenstermaker.

Donna Fenstermaker, watercolor instructor

Some of the merits of painting in watercolor are its portability, quickness to dry, transparency, and spontaneity. With this class you can also discover the meditative effect of watercolor. Learn to focus on what the paint, paper and water are doing as your painting begins to dry. Master effective techniques for planning your painting, unlock color theory, and more. This class is designed for both beginners and those familiar with watercolor painting. Most important, we’ll have fun exploring ways you can take your watercolor painting to a more sophisticated level.

An exciting add on: we'll make bamboo drawing tools to use and take home.

Sept 10-12 | 10am-4pm | $250
