With Dottie Oatman

Flowers and Vases–  Mondays, 9-11:30am. 4 classes:April 29, May 6, 13, 20.

Back by popular demand! Paint a bouquet of fresh flowers in different vases each week, learning watercolor approaches to flower painting that will get you ready for springtime and summer gardens abloom. Learn to capture the color, texture and essence of flowers as well as reflections through glass vases. Demonstrations and problem solving as usual.

Cost:  $180, includes flower modeling fee:)    Location: Studio 108, 4949 N. Broadway


Beginning Watercolor Painting — Tuesdays, 10:30-12:30pm.  4 classes: April 30, May 7, 14, 21.

I teach a series of 4 watercolor workshops for beginners (or those wanting to return to painting after time away) where you will learn about the materials needed, get a taste of mixing colors, making washes, creating texture, painting objects, and exploring negative space.  A really fun experimental approach that greatly reduces the intimidation factor.

Cost: $180 Materials included. Location: Studio 108. 4949 N. Broadway.


Beginning Two, Too.  (AKA Beginning Tutu)  Wednesdays, 10:30-1:00pm  4 classes: Wednesdays, May 1, 8, 15, 22.   A continuation of Beginning Two, a little bit of still life, a little bit of landscape, gain painting experience and confidence in this class designed to move you along in your development as a painter.
