Learn to trust the creative process and paint loose seascapes in watercolor

What Students say

"Painting without a brush definitely loosened me up. Thank you for the guidance. It was fun." Barbara McCurdy

"Having studied with Birgit for 2 years, I am still awed by her passion for watercolor, her willingness to experiment, and her dedication to meeting the needs of her students. I have enjoyed every minute spent watching her paint. Such painless learning! I am excited about this new class for 3 main reasons: Birgit is taking us deep into her creative process; we get to play with paint and water without “investment” in the outcomes" Sue Warnock

"What a privilege to be in this class! I LOVE your demos! It is SO helpful to watch you mix the paint, how much water you used, how to get the water onto the palette. "Thanks to you! Just to be able to use the photo as a reference and put paint on the paper that sort of resembles the photo, is something I have never ever done before! THANK YOU!" Agnes NM

"This is my third course with Birgit because once you discover the best instructor from whom you learn the most - well you stick with her! Tina Mewhinney TX

Different than my other courses

The foundation of this particular course is based in waves and water level one, since so many students have asked me to continue to a level two, this should be a lot of fun.

This particular course is not limited to only those that have taken waves and water one, it is meant for anyone that wants to jump in and have some fun.
