Escondido Adult School Watercolor Painting Class

 Thursday Mornings   New Session in Sept.

I call this class "Watercolor Right From the Start" but it is a good class for any level of painter from the very beginner to the extremely experienced.          I teach and demonstrate all of the basic watercolor techniques you need to know to paint successfully but you  can choose the subject you want to paint and practice your technique on. I do supply one image if you don't want to find your own image to paint in class. I circulate around the class and stop at your desk and seranade you with helpful advice, positive comments and am always happy to answer your questions.

During the next two class sessions we will continue to study color, relationships, mixing samples to save for reference in our "color notebooks" (you'll learn how to put yours together in the first class if you don't already have one). We will paint lots of small  paintings so you can get plenty of  painting practice to improve your skills to enable you to paint a variety of subject matter.  You will get inspired by your fellow students and learn motivational strategies to help you to paint with organization and zest. 

Sign up today at  www.escondidoadultschool.org  the price is a great bargain, the students are lovely, the teacher is nice and sometimes there are cookies.  You'll leave after attending the class with the inspiration and motivation to paint succesful pictures.
