I teach the nuts and bolts of watercolor. If you have had other watercolor teachers, I can almost guarantee that my classes will be really different. For one thing, I only take 6 students per class, so I can see what is happening with your work, and we discuss EVERYTHING about watercolor - art, composition, pretty much anything you like.

New students start on a project of my choosing, but after that, you are free to work on stuff I choose, or what you want to bring in - with some guidance by me (you may not want to work on a complicated group portrait as your second project if you are not ready yet for such a difficult subject). We cover choosing paint, paper, mixing colors, choosing colors, and deconstructing an image so that you can layer transparent color and wind up with what you envision - or even better than you thought. And of course, my big thing is HOW TO CONTROL WATERCOLOR (almost), plus how to fix those unplanned messes that happen when you're not looking.

We have a really good time in class (just ask my current students), and while it takes a while and some patience to really understand watercolor and make it do what YOU want it to do and it generally takes more than one 8 week class to get proficient - anybody with a burning desire to wrestle the heart out of watercolor, and the willingness to learn the basics can master this art medium.
