Well, already April 3rd and so much going on!
My class will begin on April 18th and go until May 23rd. I am taking on the class from Artist Enda Bardell as she will be travelling Europe during the month of May. I am very excited to have this opportunity to teach Expressive Watercolors!
Classes are through the West Vancouver Rec Center and the link is on my website. Our first class will be a Mediterrean Sun Rise and we will be using blues, greys some purple and yellows and orange to show the sun's reflections on the water. We will work with everyone's pallette and talk about color theory to help us be as "expressive" as possible.
