Don't be afraid of watercolor painting - it's easier than you think. Especially if you like breaking all the rules.
Watercolor paints are the quickest to dry, and they teach you some very important things, like patience, learning to live with your mistakes, and finding beauty between layers.
In this class we will explore a splish-splash, abstract type of positive painting style. The least of your concerns should be form and perfection. All you have to worry about is feeling comfortable getting the paint on the page. We will explore color mixing, layering, and how to bring out definition to your art in the post-production process using INK. I like to work a little backwards from other watercolor artists, and you can too!
You will walk away from this class with:
- Two 5x7" pieces of artwork on cold-pressed watercolor paper
- A fun new trick you've learned that you can do while home, having a quiet night
- The chance to check out a unique gallery full of inspiration from several local artists, including SOHA's owner Julie Malone!
- As well as the opportunity to donate your work to an up-and-coming nonprofit organization called The Free Art Campaign Link here: The Free Art Campaign

David W.Not Your Typical Watercolor Class
Prior to this class, it had been about 35 years since I last attempted watercolor. This was a wonderful way to put the world on hold for a minute and rekindle the free-spirited joy of childhood. The instruction was fun and informative and the environment playful and supportive. Even if you don't consider yourself to be an "artist" or a "painter," you may be surprised by what you create in this class.

I enjoyed this class. I feel as though I could do watercolor on my own now. It was fun having this class outside at the festival.

Decided to take this class with my girlfriend as a present for her and was surprised (for a guy with limited art "skill") to actually learn a couple things and enjoyed myself a lot! Highly recommend!
Ashley S.Not Your Typical Watercolor Class
I loved this class so much! It was a relaxing way to learn watercolor. I was surprised how much I liked the finish results as I'm usually my own worst critic! We were even lucky enough to have it hosted outdoors at The Strange Folk Festival!
Carolyn C.Not Your Typical Watercolor Class
Had a wonderful time with Andrea! My particular class was outside under a tent for the Strange Folk festival and she did a great job of walking around to demonstrate technique and give guidance. Really loved the art I took home :)

Carol P.Not Your Typical Watercolor Class
Andrea is a god teacher with lots of ideas to make you understand and improve. The class was fun and informative. I look forward to taking another.
Joni W.Not Your Typical Watercolor Class
Andrea helped us explore letting the watercolor work for itself and create images. I enjoyed working with watercolors in a tube and plan on purchasing some of my own soon!
Andrea did a great job of motivating us to create our work by letting us know what she liked. She also gave us feedback as we were working, to improve what we were making.
