What you'll learn in this watercolor class:

In this two-hour workshop, students will learn basic watercolor techniques. We'll then complete a series of watercolor paintings using these techniques.

Techniques such as dry brush and wet into wet will be demonstrated by our teacher, followed by ample time for students to experiment with the materials and techniques on their own. We'll also demonstrate how to set up a drawing from life, from set up and sketching and how to structure your painting.

Feel free to bring inspirational images for your watercolors. All materials provided and no experience with watercolors is necessary!

Refund Policy

Note: This provider has a temporary cancellation policy for COVID-19 related cancellations which is as follows: 

I'm currently offering credits for any cancellations made seven days or fewer to a class starting. I can't afford to do cash refunds right now, but credits are fine if the spot is canceled any time before the start date (even if less than 72 hours). Spots that are canceled more than seven days before the class starts are eligible for cash refunds.    

 ---- 

Original cancellation policy (non-COVID-19):

If you're looking for a refund or class credit, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it's draconian, but since we aren't charging an arm and a leg and have to buy all our materials in advance, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings.


We also can't transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!


Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can't give you a refund less than a week out, even if there's a wait list for the class. 


Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.

The instructor and host were very nice, and it was great that all the supplies were provided. I wish there had been a bit more instruction, but the freedom to do our own to do our own thing was great too.
