About the Class: Watercolors are magic! In this five class series, you’ll learn the basics: colors, light, brushes, papers, and the special possibilities that using water gives.
Carolyn creates a gentle environment—in her gorgeous studio—for you to explore, have fun, and express yourself in this beautiful medium. Each class builds on the last. The more you play with the watercolors, the more language you will gain to sing through your hands! Also, we will build a supportive community of beginners, where mistakes are welcome and achievements warmly noted.
