My classes...

My classes are very informal. Each student works on their own choice of painting. Every student's painting is an opportunity for me, their instructior to help them problem solve and complete a finished watercolor. I give demonstrations, offer hands on help and gentle critiques. A little chit-chat, a little music and some coffee! My goal is for each student to master the skills on their own level.
