Watercolors with Laura Hopper provides a fun non-threatening approach to painting with watercolors.  At each class complete a painting ready for framing in an 11×14 frame.  Plus you will paint a bookmark, watercolor box, or hand painted card.  We’ll be using wet-into- wet and wet-onto-dry techniques, and create interesting results using experimental watercolor techniques.

Laura will provide all supplies to enable you to experience the medium of watercolor before making a major purchase of supplies.  We’ll discuss where to to go and what to buy if you want to continue painting.  This is a stress-free approach to experiencing watercolor in a relaxed setting.

Space is limited to 16 students ages 16 and over.

Join mixed media artist, Pat Krishnamurthy (Sequoia Studio #2) for a fun and fearless, six week course in Beginning Mixed Media Art Journaling. Pat will share her “toolbox” of materials and techniques for creating depth and interest in your journal pages. In the first class, you will make the pages of your journal. You will then learn techniques for creating interesting backgrounds that eliminate the fear of the white page. In subsequent weeks, Pat will provide creative inspiration for your journal pages while teaching you how to layer materials to create complexity and depth. By the end of the class, you will have finished a covered, multi-page, loose leaf, visual journal filled with your thoughts and ideas. You will have also learned a wonderful new way to relax and “go with the flow”.
