Beginner’s Watercolor Workshop

This was a great class where I learned a lot. The instructor was patient and always happy to review any techniques that we reviewed in class. I enjoyed getting tips on improving and working on different subjects to get a lot of overall experience!

Beginner's Watercolor Painting

The class was good and the teacher was good. But some of the work was to uniform and I don’t think that’s a good way to teach beginners to do their artwork. In life flowers are not uniform and should not be painted as such. They are random. Otherwise I learned a lot from that class and enjoyed it. I felt like the teacher was very easy-going with the students and good for a beginner class.

The class was perfect for a beginner. The instructor went at a nice pace, did a great job managing the challenges of online instruction, answered questions and provided feedback.
