Sun AM June July August Class

In the SATURDAY SUMMER LIGHT SERIES we will be experimenting, playing with, Watercolor, Watercolor Pencils, Frisket (masking fluid), and all sorts of other things like salt, alcohol, Saran Wrap, and more as we explore both traditional and experimental watercolor techniques.  The subject matter we focus on will vary throughout the class from sunsets to objects both living and human made. We will also investigate different expressive, abstract and representational styles of art.

Starts June 6th! 11-2pm (Pacific Time) 2-5pm (Eastern Time) 3 Hour long classes

DATES: We will meet Sundays; June 6, 13, 20, 27 July (no class on the 4th) 11, 18, 25 August 1, 8, 15, 22, 29 from 11am-1pm Pacific Time (that’s 12 classes all optional to take live or by video (*just remember that when I’m not able to have internet I will be sending out the video for that Saturday class)

Each class will be recorded that day and the link to view it will be sent along with the notes from the class each week. Recorded classes are only available to those who register for the class so we can keep a safe and nurturing space for those to express themselves.

Students have been paying anywhere from $5 – $50 per class, which comes out to $20-$200 for the whole course. Please adjust the default payment to what matches your financial means and needs. No one turned away due to lack of funds.

Summer “Light” Saturday Series: WATERCOLOR

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 attend! 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.

In the SATURDAY SUMMER LIGHT SERIES we will be experimenting, playing with, Watercolor, Watercolor Pencils, Frisket (masking fluid), and all sorts of other things like salt, alcohol, Saran Wrap, and more as we explore both traditional and experimental watercolor techniques.  The subject matter we focus on will vary throughout the class from sunsets to objects both living and human made. We will also investigate different expressive, abstract and representational styles of art.

Details:

  1. Classes will be live when possible – I will be traveling so when I have internet and electricity there will be a live class.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

DATES: We will meet Sundays; June 6, 13, 20, 27 July (no class on the 4th) 11, 18, 25 August 1, 8, 15, 22, 29 from 11am-2pm Pacific Time and 2-5pm Eastern Time (3 HOURS LONG!) This series is12 classes all optional to take live or by video (*just remember that when I’m not able to have internet I will be sending out the video for that Saturday class)

NOTES: When I have internet I will be doing a live class. If I don’t have it you will receive the link to a video of that specific class. I will be recording all of them on Saturday and you will receive the videos as soon as I can get them out – most likely that evening or the next day.
