I have been teaching water painting for almost 10 years..
This is a very exciting class! Students will learn How to Paint Watercolors, How to hold a watercolor brush and Basic Brush Control Exercises etc...
I will get you started and perhaps inspire you, as a watercolor painter. I can supply lessons on the craft and skills, but purpose is what is driving you to want to try to create art. What that vision is, is unique for everyone. The footsteps of the path that lies before you are yours to follow until you can find your own path.
So what are you waiting for ? Sign up your lesson today!

Helped me a lot with pronunciation. At times he is hard to understand because of his accent, but I'm sure I am hard for him to understand as well. Still, I learned a lot and want to continue.

Daniel was extremely patient and methodical with his teaching and explanations. Not only did I learn a lot during his class, but I felt motivated to continue studying. He definitely went above and beyond to make sure I have the resources and support I need even outside of my sessions. Thanks Daniel!
