Get lost in space!

In this hands-on art class you’ll learn how to paint a stunning galaxy in watercolor.

We’ll cover watercolor techniques such as wet on wet painting to blend color, pulling out paint to create depth, splatter painting to make your nebulas shine, and using tape to achieve crisp border lines.

After practicing the techniques, we’ll do a step-by-step walkthrough of how to pull it all together to paint a glowing, starry cosmic scene. You’ll leave class with two unique, gorgeous galaxy paintings ready for framing!

This is perfect for beginners, and also those with some experience desiring to try something new. All supplies needed for the workshop will be provided.

 

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

 

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, flat palette, and pack of 5”x7” watercolor paper.
