Class Registration Form

September 1-The “Annual Watercolor Show” reception will be held from 2:00-4:00 in the classroom with art in the Enid Joy Mount Gallery. This show is open to everyone who loves to paint any subject matter with watercolors. Children are also encouraged to enter the show. Refreshments will be served, awards will be given and the judge will talk about the art entries. Come and meet the artists.


Learn to express in watercolor. When classes start in September we begin by painting the harmonies and textures in nature, skies, trees, rocks and water. Then move on to rendering people, city scenes and more. Each lesson begins with drawing to work out composition and value. The painting is completed with traditional direct and glazing watercolor techniques. Join me for fun and learning.

Variety in Watercolor: All Levels Welcome $100/4 or $30 drop-in fee per day. Register here.

Wednesdays: Sept 5 – Dec. 19 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.*
