Come paint with us!

Watercolor painting is a lively medium that can be unpredictable, exciting, and often challenging. In this beginner course, we will help you gain confidence when working with this often unpredictable and free-flowing paint.

Learn the fundamentals of watercolors such as washes, mark-making with different brushes, gradients, color mixing, and practice exercises. This class is perfect for the beginner who wants to explore watercolors for the first time and the intermediate painter eager to learn new skills to add to their own practice.

About the instructor: Debra Hardy is an artist and educator. She received her MA in Art Education from the University of Texas at Austin in 2015. She has been playing and practicing with watercolors since 2007 and has been expanding her practice since early 2016. Her arts discipline spans the "feminine"; textile craft, watercolor painting, pattern-making, and decorative arts. She is currently working on an untitled watercolor postcard project.
