Lesson Details

Watercolor Painting

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I have over thirty years experience teaching both privately and in group situations. I teach all levels from beginning and as young as six years old to the most advanced students. We never stop learning!

I started a very successful after school art program for kids grades 1-6 and taught it every day for over three years. I then expanded and had other artists teach it, eventually giving it to a non profit art organization in the San Diego area, after a successful ten year run.

Lynn is an excellent teacher. She knows excellent how to take you through the process so you understand exactly where you are going and when you go home it is easier to recall. Rare in a teacher. Thanks Lynn!
