This September, I am teaching a new 4 week session of Watercolor Techniques at Marnee’s Studio in Mobile, AL. Enjoy a morning of fun while learning the fundamentals of watercolor in a relaxing environment. We will cover the basic techniques including wet into wet, wet on dry, dry brush, masking, using mixed materials such as sea salt, paper towels and more. Consider taking if you are local and have ever considered experimenting with this medium.
The class will run on Wednesdays, September 12, 19, 26 & October 3. We have a great group so far and you can still register or drop in for one class to try it out!
