What Students say

This is a really fun painting and could go in many directions. You really are the best, most clear instructor, and leave folks to add their own "spice" to the stew. Many thanks for the kindness of your gifts. I always look forward to these lessons. :) Frances Gill-Turano

This course is designed to make watercolor accessible to children and those young at heart. What that means is taking a medium which is known to difficult and breaking it down into a way that is easy to understand and be able to use whatever materials you have available and still be successful.

Have fun enjoy yourself and happy painting.
