Class Location

Reeves Art Studio


Come and enjoy an afternoon of watercolor. This class is for any level of experience. I will be happy to challenge you at whatever your experience level. We will explore different types of watercolor paintings – more structured and detailed and looser paintings. We will practice layering color to add depth and shading, painting composition, and basic sketching. Participants will have at least three finished pieces and gain more confidence with the medium.
