It was clear right away that Julie is very professional and highly experienced. I like how she started off with solid foundational work habits and methodologies to kick off my photography learning experience.
Angela
I've taken two online photography lessons with Julie so far and I have learned more in those two lessons than in all the group online courses I have taken in the past. Julie explains things very well and is very willing to answer any questions I may have. I am excited to continue my lessons with her!

I have been drawing and painting my whole life and love to teach drawing and painting to anyone who wants to learn.

Preston is a very nice coach. I was a beginner with zero experience before. After five lessons, I gained solid basic skills and feel more comfortable to rally. I feel growing by leaps and bounces.

He is very sharp about identifying the problem and then training accordingly. He is also kind and very patient to guide

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.

About Karen

I love showing people how fun creating can be, and helping them tap into their own creativity no matter how deep down it may be buried! My passion is watercolor painting and I really want to share this amazing medium with you. All levels are welcome, especially those who have never tried watercolor

Terry
Karen’s beginner watercolor class was a fun and easy atmosphere to learn in . She was very encouraging while demonstrating and talking about the skills we practiced while producing finished pictures. I have a whole new respect for water and paint!
Cynthia
I have been very much enjoying Karen’s watercolor painting. classes. The class is fun and I am learning from it.
At the beginning of each class , she starts with a helpful lesson on watercolor techniques and then she has us proceed to working on our paintings. . She has a pleasant personality and provides the
right amount of instruction and encouragement.
Because of COVID, our classes had to go virtual, but she has managed online teaching very well. She even purchased an additional camera, so that we can clearly see the technique she is demonstrating to us.
Kathy Andrzejewski
This class was a wonderful experience for learning beginning watercolor skills. I enjoyed Karen's pleasant engaging manner of instruction. She was very dynamic online can't imagine what it would have been like in person. I plan to take additional classes with her in the future to increase my skill level.
