Watercolor painting has a way of showing emotion and expression. The most fabulous thing about being an artist is that boundaries regarding creativity are non-existent. The artist is always in a state of learning. Art is a progressive practice that takes time to develop.

Students will be introduced to the color wheel, basic materials needed, perspective, and the differences between realistic and impressionistic painting techniques.

Materials are not included.

Watercolor painting lessons will be assessed based on the individual's current abilities and their goals.

Note:
For virtual sessions, the student will need to create a conducive workspace that will allow teacher/student viewing of art work in progress. The student will need a workspace with lots of light. Often, I will ask to see the students progress, so that I may be able critique and give advise on their work in progress.

For short-term sessions (virtual or in-person), the teacher and student will collaborate and ...

I decided to take painting lessons from Morgan because while I have experience in drawing, I was a complete beginner when it comes to painting. Now after just a couple months of biweekly lessons, I feel like I have a good grasp on the fundamentals of oil painting. I've already painted several pieces that I really like. Morgan has been very supportive and knowledgeable the whole way through. I'm very glad I decided to take lessons from her.

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

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.

"I totally enjoyed my watercolor lesson with Megan -- a birthday gift from my kids. Although I've dabbled in watercolors previously, Megan taught me a few formal techniques which I used to create a small finished piece and which I will be able to use going forward. I got a lot out of our two hours together!"
