$85.00 – $95.00

11 May 2022 update: This workshop is SOLD OUT.  Please email alice@ruthbancroftgarden.org to be put on the waitlist.

In this fine arts approach to watercolor basics with Wendy Soneson, you will examine correct materials, brush and paper uses, and color mixing. We will cover right brain drawing and then learn how to compose a painting of some of the beautiful and unique plants at Ruth Bancroft Garden.

Please review these ten mini lessons to understand this process-oriented approach to watercolor. You can also listen to this podcast. You will learn to open your artist’s eye to new beauty.

No materials needed for first class. You may purchase a kit or get a materials list for the second and third classes.

This in-person workshop is a three part series from 10am-12pm on Thursdays (12, 19 & 26 May 2022).  The first class will be indoors and the second and third class will be indoors/outdoors.
