METHOW SKILLS: Easy Start Watercolor with Paula Christen

In this all-inclusive session, Paula Christen will show you the easy-start way to painting watercolors. Forget the old excuses – I can’t draw or I’ve never painted or I haven’t picked up a brush in years. Paula will take you step by step through the basics of brush techniques and how to make fresh, juicy colors. At the end of this session you will experience some of the magic on how watercolors come together, have techniques you can build upon and take home your own small painting. Handouts of Paula’s tips, supply list, worksheets and starter sketch kit will also be included with this class.

This class is suggested for “curious but no experience” or beginner painters.

Cost of the workshop includes a $30 materials fee.

The workshop will be held in the Education Station (Building 9) on the TwispWorks campus. Pre-registration is required.
