Come enjoy the beauty and calm of watercolor painting!

In this very beginner friendly workshop you’ll learn about the basics of mixing and painting with watercolors. We’ll focus on creating a range of colors using the three primaries of red, yellow, and blue and techniques to apply the paint to paper. You’ll then spend the remainder of class painting an illustration of your choice from a selection of floral, fauna, and abstract images.

No painting experience is required and all materials will be provided.

 

Note: If a date is sold out, join the waitlist to be contacted when a spot opens up.

This class is taking place in our Portland studio. Looking to join a live virtual online session instead? Find it here! 

 

(optional) Would you like a kit to continue the fun at home after class?

Select the "Class Registration & Watercolor Kit Bundle" option (+$38) and you'll take home from class a kit with everything you need to continue the painting fun. The kit includes three 8ml tubes of high quality Winsor & Newton Cotman watercolor paint (red, yellow, and blue), a round brush, palette, and pack of 5”x7” watercolor paper.
