This class is geared for you. You will have some fun sketching and painting, including learning basic watercolor techniques, focusing on a variety of subjects. Even if you may think you don’t have an artistic bone in your body, your instructor wants to prove otherwise. Learn to draw from props we set-up in class, or from references you bring.
