Beginning Watercolor & Pen

via ZOOM ~  Wednesdays 

10 am-12:30 pm

(log on from 9:30 am)

2 classes per series on a theme,  $50 

Stay healthy and paint from home with your phone, desktop, or other favorite device. Set up your table to paint along as you watch demos and get help on your project as you go. You don't have to pack up your supplies and drive a distance. You can meet up with your art friends (or make new ones) via Zoom. 

This is a true Beginning Watercolor painting class with Pen & Ink. We will work on all kinds of basic skills including basic drawing guidelines for seeing shapes and lines and how to get them from your eye/mind onto the paper. We'll go over the properties of the paint, and basic techniques for laying down paint including wet-into-wet and wet-into-dry applications and how to know when to use each. We will cover what it means to glaze and how to do it. You'll gain a good understanding of your materials (including brushes) and begin to gain control over this most fabulous of paint mediums (okay, I'm biased!) We  will also cover basic pen techniques both modern and traditional. You will gain understanding of how and when to use pen in your artwork. Each class will give you skills that you can build on in the next one.


Sign up at or via PayPal or Venmo for any 4-date series (4 classes per month) that interests you and reserve your spot to be part of a fun and instructive class. We will do multiple projects in the month.  Once your tuition is received, confirmation of your participation and handouts (inspiration piece, photo reference, and traceable drawing plus invitation link) will be sent to you ahead of class for you to prepare. Class will open a half hour ahead of start time for you to secure your link and visit before instruction begins.
