Watercolor Galaxy Workshop

watercolor painting class night sky

Regular price $45.00


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.

Unless otherwise noted, workshops are for those 16 years of age or over.
