Have you always wanted to paint flowers that jump right off the page, but you are just not sure how to achieve that effect?

Then this watercolor class has you in mind. The focus of this class will be Fuchsias, but not their common colors. Instead of being stuck with mundane colors you will be encouraged to create incredible colors schemes that you never would have considered before. This class is about having fun and learning something new. You will receive the drawing ahead of the class to have it ready to paint on the first day of class.


NANCY COLLINS is a full time watercolorist. Teaching is one of her passions. “Opening doors for others who would like to paint is fun! Everyone can learn to paint, all you need is a tour guide, and that’s my job as an instructor.” Nancy has been showcased in American Artist magazine and Watercolor Magic. Her work was also selected for the book, Splash 17, and has hung abroad in the "Art in the Embassy Program" as well as a one woman show at Stanford University. Nancy has also judged national and international shows. She teaches continuing education classes throughout the United States.
