Watercolor Workshop

Instructor: Sandra Principe

THURSDAYS  |  November 4, 11, 18, Dec 2


Workshop Fee: $75

Class held in Galena ARC Art Studio

Level: Beginner to Intermediate



The students in the first session had so much fun we are extending the workshop for 4 more weeks and welcoming new students.


This class is designed for anyone interested in painting watercolors. Whether you are a beginner or intermediate watercolorist you are welcome to join this class. The goal is for every participant to come away from this class knowing more about watercolors while having an enjoyable painting experience.


Each two-hour session will begin with a half hour demonstration of watercolor painting techniques and principles including color, value, edges, washes and composition. (For those of you already familiar with watercolor you are welcome to listen and to paint during this time.) The balance of the class will be painting your own watercolor. You can bring an image you would like to paint or paint one of the sample paintings I will bring to class.


Whatever your current skill level, this class will be a good opportunity to advance your skill level and to paint with a small group of people interested in watercolor. Class is limited to 10 people.


Everyone will have their own painting table with plenty of space to work. At this time masks are still required to wear when entering the ARC and during class. 


See the supply list below but if you have basic watercolor paint, paper and brushes I encourage you to use what you have.
