In this class I will present ways to inspire and motivate artists of all levels to play with watercolor and mixed media. Painting "outside the lines" is a tremendously freeing experience and will prove to be a key factor in your growth and success as an artist. Learning to use a variety of proven techniques and non-traditional approaches will give you the freedom to explore.

My objective in this workshop is to expand your artistic vision by sketching, exploring, experimenting and developing creativity, along with enthusiasm, new techniques and knowledge you can use for a lifetime. Painters of all skill levels welcome. Some experience helpful.
