What you'll learn in this watercolor class:

Explore wet-on-wet washes to let colors flow and bleed into each other, creating beautifully unexpected effects. Using washes on a dry surface, you’ll experience the reverse—control and form.

This watercolor workshop is an introduction and exploration designed for adults of all artistic abilities. Both methods will encourage your creativity and skills. We’ll be inspired by lush vegetables, fruits, florals, textural displays and decorative lettering. .

I really enjoyed my class! I ended up taking home two pictures. Our teacher was extremely knowlegable, patient, and was always willing to help or teach us new techniques.

The class was fun and the instructor was great. She was a very talented artist. With lots of her own work as examples. We sampled a number of different techniques in class, I learned many new things.

Marika is a wonderful teacher and clearly loves teaching. She focused on botanicals, which was right up my alley, and gave us lots of great usable advice.
