This is not your typical watercolor class. No flowers. No seascapes. Not even a bowl of fruit. Instead, in this class we stay abstract and spontaneous as we follow where the watercolor wants to organically flow. With watercolor play we apply watercolor in ways that create abstract forms, unpredictable blends and fractal like branches. We then allow our watercolor to “mingle” with other elements such as doodling, mark making and collaging with fabric scraps & handmade paper. This class is fun and easy to dive into so little to no art experience is needed. Join me as we uncover what beautiful and creative abstracts can be created when we just allow ourselves to play and discover the unexpected. Adults 18+
If you are unable to make any of the classes, no worries, I will be recording each session so they will be available for later viewing during the duration of the class.

Here is a quick video on how to join the classroom
Do you feel overwhelmed by the thought of using Zoom? Don’t have a computer with video & audio? Or you just would prefer not to attend an online class live?
No worries. I realize that the whole tech stuff can be a huge learning curve for many and can be overwhelming. It’s more important to me that this class is available to everyone on different levels, so you have the following Non-Zoomer Options to take this class.
Audio Only: You can attend the class LIVE without having to be on video, but you have the ability to ask me questions through audio only. You also have access to sending me instant messages in Zoom.
Watch Only: You can attend the class LIVE without video & audio, but still have the ability to view the class through watch only. You also have access to sending me instant messages in Zoom if you have any questions.
Email Recordings: You don’t need to attend any of the Zoom classes LIVE, but instead you have the option to take the class by watching the recordings that will be emailed to you after each weekly class has ended. You will receive all the same PDFs of weekly lessons and instructions. You will also be able to email me with any questions about the project and techniques. With this option, since you also receive the Zoom Classroom link weekly, you will have the freedom to join the classes LIVE if you ever change your mind. Recordings will be available for viewing for the duration of the class only.
