This introduction to watercolor basics in a supportive environment is for beginners with minimal or no watercolor experience. Take the “scary” out of watercolor as you learn secrets to control watercolor and correct mistakes. Joyce Clair shows you how to make your painting tools work for you. Color mixing, basic techniques, and landscape elements are demonstrated and practiced. Joyce will guide you step-by-step as you trace and copy a simple landscape in watercolor. You will be amazed at your results!

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. All supplies provided and students go home with one completed painting ready to frame and hang.
