What you'll learn in this watercolor class:

This course is designed for all levels, from beginners wishing to learn the basic techniques of watercolor painting to experienced painters looking to take their work to the next level. One-on-one instruction will be a staple of each class. A series of demonstrations will be conducted to introduce the foundational skills needed for working in this lively medium. Additionally, Ms. Fukushima will bring in samples of her work and discuss the process she employs when creating her award-winning body of work.

Q&A

Q: Can I make up a class if I miss one? 
A: No, there are no makeup classes. Because art is taught with demonstrations and demonstrations are time consuming, if one person misses the class each week, the instructor would spend the first part of each class repeating the demonstration from last week before moving on to the next lesson, which isn't fair to the students who attended. That said, most of our classes are taught atelier style. If there is a demonstration during the particular session, after the demonstration, the instructor goes to each student to work with them on a one-on-one basis. During this time, the instructor can work with you if you missed the previous week to talk and explain what to do.

Q: Are materials provided and included in the cost of the class? 
A: No. Materials include:
  1. Paper: Arches 140 lb Block Cold press (choose your size)
  2. Brushes: Round, size 2,4,6,(8) (check and make sure your brush has fine point) (recommended: Winsor & Newton Sceptre Gold II series) (one flat brush size 12)

    • Winsor Red

    • Hooker’s Green

Refund Policy
100% refund will be issued up to seven days after the first class. After this, no refund will be issued.

MAKE-UP POLICY
Unfortunately, we do not offer makeup classes. The instructor can tell them what they missed. Most of our classes are taught atelier style. If there is a demonstration during the particular session, after the demonstration the instructor goes to each student to work with them on a one-to-one basis. During this time the instructor can work with the student who missed the previous week, talk with them and explain what to do.
