    Have some fun with the transparency and looseness of watercolors. The emphasis will be on learning and using watercolor techniques to expand the ways you can express yourself. Each class will include exploratory exercises to build skills and gain experience. With watercolor there is no time to overthink and you are never quite in complete control. So leave perfectionism behind, and enjoy learning about the beauty of watercolor. This is a beginning class. No experience necessary. Our class will be on Zoom, a video chat software that is really easy to use. Just download the app on your device (desktop computer, laptop, or tablet). I will provide you with a link before class time. Click on it when class begins, and you are in! Four 2.5-hour sessions. Maximum of 8 students. (Please sign up no later than noon January 4th to insure time to receive class link)
