Fun Watercolor Class
Introductory watercolor for adults

This is a fun introduction to watercolor with local artist, Jenny Vogt. She will teach you a few of her “cheater techniques” and guide you through the process. You’ll have fun creating a watercolor painting that you will be proud of. We use liquid watercolors that are much easier to start with compared to tube watercolors.
All supplies and inspiration will be provided.
No experience needed!

Soft beverages will be provided, or BYOB responsibly.
Bring a friend! It’s a stress-free evening of colorful discovery!
Class sizes are limited. Sign up early. No refunds. Participants under 18 are welcome with a paying adult.
