In these relaxing classes you will discover the joy of painting with watercolors. If you have always wanted to try watercolor, these are the classes for you! Paints, brushes, and paper are included so you do not have the large start up expense of buying costly art supplies. You will complete a painting in each class as Marian demonstrates them step by step.

I have included links showing student paintings to give you a realistic idea of what to expect. Keep in mind that these are beginning watercolorists — usually they have not painted with watercolors before the lesson. I have included ALL the paintings from a class — not just the best.
