Watercolor has a very special place in my heart because it is most like Scenic painting which was my career for 10 years before I became a teacher. There are some wonderful, quick, techniques you can learn in the first few lessons. If it is your first experience in art, I would recommend a few lessons in drawing or design before continuing. Watercolor is not an easy medium and so I don't recommend it to students with no drawing or design experience, however, a few lessons in these areas can get you on your way and if your interest is in using watercolor for abstract paintings or design work, then it can easily be incorporated into the watercolor lessons.

In private watercolor classes I will show you the basics of watercolor and the ways to make it fun. Popular classes include how to paint animals, faces or landscapes. Water colors are wonderful for illustration, expressive art or realism. Watercolor is a relaxing and meditative medium perfect for a busy life to slow down and appreciate the creative flow. 30 MINUTE CRITIQUE: If you want a critique of your artwork to help you with the next steps , sign up for the 30 minute class, you will receive a recording of the class . GROUP CLASSES: I also offer group classes for friends , student and co workers .

I am a practicing artist of almost 9 years! Being creative is a great way to express yourself and bring forth a piece of mind. Painting is an activity that allows for you to put on canvas whatever landscape, image or emotion you wish to portray. From abstract painting to hyperrealism, we can dive in together to discover some of your favorite ways to express your creativity. Whether it be through watercolor, acrylic, oil painting or another medium, painting what the student wishes to gain further experience in is what we will accomplish. My aspiration is to be able to let each student discover and further the true artist within them! Shoot me a message and let’s get creative! All skill levels welcome!

We will learn the very basic mechanics of how to paint with watercolors. We will explore different techniques in watercolor painting, including washes, wet in wet work, and glazing. There will be practice exercises each lesson that then will be applied to a painting. Working in this beautiful medium is fun and rewarding. My lessons and classes are designed for the beginner just getting comfortable with watercolor, as well as the intermediate painter.
