My Teaching Philosophy

Castle Rock Painting ClassesMy goal is to teach the fundamentals of watercolor in a fun and colorful environment. In the Beginning Watercolor class I will teach the basics of creating a successful watercolor painting. This class presents information on supplies, reference material, color, value, light, composition, special techniques and more to the beginning student and benefits the more advanced student by strengthening knowledge of fundamentals for success. The Watercolor Workshop will explore more advanced techniques and concepts while giving students an opportunity to work on their own projects in conjunction with the theme of the class. Themes will include such subjects as landscapes, flowers, animals and reflective surfaces. Beginning students may wish to stay for the Watercolor Workshop to continue painting and extend their time for instruction. A discount is offered to students who take both classes.

Art is ultimately a personal expression of each individual’s view of the world. I encourage unique creativity while teaching the skills to execute your vision. My goal is to personalize the instruction as much as possible in a class setting. Students also benefit from meeting fellow artists, observing different styles and techniques, and making new friends! Creativity can be therapeutic, invigorating, and exciting! I will take the guesswork out of the creative process so it’s less intimidating and more FUN! Each student will be supported and encouraged. There will be demos, instruction at all levels, critique and lots of painting time. Class time will be structured, yet open enough to accommodate the artistic spirit within all of us all. All levels are welcome and encouraged to attend. The only prerequisite is a desire to have fun creating! You will come away from this class with enthusiasm for watercolor painting, some new techniques, a new friend and knowledge that you can use for a lifetime!
