Watercolor Class at the Bountiful Davis Art Center

The Flower Keep

I will be teaching a watercolor class at the Bountiful Davis Art Center. It will begin Wednesday, September 7th 9a.m. until 11 a.m. and continue until October 12th.

Class Description:  “Art is a life time of observation and learning, a lifetime of exploring and experimenting. Art is a life time of joy in expression.”-S.M.

In this class we will learn and explore watercolor. We will start with a sketch in our sketch books to get the creative juices flowing. We will have a short demo and talk about a principal of art that will help our paintings. Then we will practice and learn how to work with watercolor. We will start from where you are at and go from there. Don’t be afraid of the level you are at. Just come, participate and learn.
