Watercolor Adventure for Kids
Joyce Clair is teaching a two hour class that is full of fun and adventure for kids age 9 and older. Imagination and creativity is nurtured as your child or grandchild creates a watercolor painting. A child also develops problem solving skills, self-confidence, and a sense of accomplishment when they engage in creating art. Each class is different as we explore techniques, color, and design.

This class is for students with some watercolor experience. Watercolor canvas is made especially for watercolor. Watercolor canvas is similar to painting on yupo paper but you have more control. A benefit of painting on watercolor canvas is your painting does not need to be framed under glass. A protective spray of UV archival varnish is all that is needed. Bring your watercolor supplies and a reference photo.
Schedule a fun painting party with your friends at ArtWorks. You will be proud of your finished painting of a seasonal subject. Don‘t worry, no painting or drawing experience required! Your instructor, Joyce Clair, will lead you step-by-step as we create the same painting together. Class fee includes painting supplies and a mat to frame your “party painting”.
A glass of sparkling cider or soft drink will be served with light snacks.
