Adult Painting Classes

Watercolor Basics and Beyond


Taught by Lauren Belcastro

Learn at your own pace. Lauren will design weekly group projects, demonstrating and elaborating on new watercolor techniques each week. Focuses will include nature, still lifes, copying photographs and more! Students will have the freedom to go in their own directions in this class, as they become more comfortable with the techniques. Classes will include time for discussion and critique at the end of each class, as this helps each artist grow artistically and fosters community with the group. 

*Students will need to purchase their own watercolor pads, artist tape, set of watercolors and brushes. You will receive a complete materials list when you register for the session.
