New exercises bring new growth to watercolor painting. If you want to try watercolor painting but haven’t delved into the process, or if you’ve tried and feel frustrated, this workshop may inspire you. Students will explore traditional and innovative ways to work with watercolors during this two-day workshop. Floral and landscape paintings will be the focus. All levels welcome.

With 40 years of experience in watercolor painting, Jan will coach you in the basics and beyond, depending on your level.  (Materials are not included, but may be purchased on line or locally; see list below).
