STARTS SATURDAY, June 5th! SATURDAY Classes are: 11am-1pm (Pacific Time) 2-4pm (Eastern Time) SUNDAY classes are 11am-2pm (Pacific Time) 2-5pm (Eastern Time)
Please join me for “Summer Light” — meaning light commitment for those who are traveling, back at work, or want to play more outside and not sit inside on Zoom for Art Classes. Come when you can and use the video when you can’t! When I can’t be live (since I will be traveling) you will have access to the 2 hour video and can do it at your pace in your free time.
If you register for this SATURDAY AND SUNDAY SERIES you will have access to come live to both classes whenever you can (and whenever I can do them live!) You will also have access to LINKS TO BOTH VIDEOS weekly. This way you can fit a weekly class into your schedule with a little bit more ease and you can learn both watercolor and mixed media techniques.
in the SATURDAY SUMMER “LIGHT” SERIES we will be exploring colored pencils, Inktense, Neocolor Pastels, and Water Based Markers and maybe some light collage.
in the SUNDAY SUMMER “LIGHT” SERIES we will be experimenting, playing, and learning many techniques with Watercolor, Watercolor Pencils, frisket (masking fluid), and all sorts of other things like salt, alcohol, Saran Wrap, and more!
- Classes will be live when possible – I will be traveling so when I have internet and electricity there will be a live class.
- Video will be guaranteed – If I can’t do a live class I will make a video class and send it out to all who register.
- You can donate and get one video at a time from my website. If you see something I create during class and want to learn how to create it, you can just purchase that specific 2 hour video.
COST: By Donation (students have been paying anywhere from $25 – $250 for a month long course.) Please pay what matches your financial means and needs. No on turned away due to lack of funds.
