Join me for a watercolor workshop at West Elm in Seattle

We will get together with a goal of making a magical starry night sky painting and learning some great new watercolor skills. I will do a watercolor demo to get us started off and then everyone will have the opportunity to create their own painting. You may bring reference photos of your favorite landscapes, or you can paint from your imagination. 

While we paint, there will be plenty of time to talk about creative voice, technique, process, painting in the backcountry, or any other questions you have. You do not need a ton of painting experience to attend this class. Everyone is welcome!

If you already have materials you love to work with bring them with you!

If you would like me to provide art supplies for you (hand picked by me-that you get to take home!) choose the ticket option that includes supplies. You will get 1 more more of everything listed below.

I recommend bringing the following: 

-Paper or a sketchbook. I really like watercolor paper blocks (meaning paper bound on all 4 sides)

-A few pens and pencils (Any kind will do. I like micron pens and mechanical pencils)

-An eraser

-A paint brush. I recommend this water brush

-A small watercolor set. A great cheap option is the Winsor Newton Sketcher's Pocket Box Set

-Masking fluid

-A paper towel or a bit of TP

-Any reference photos you have of a landscape you love or a starry sky 

See you there! (BTW, This workshop will be smaller than only my others and is capped at 15 people. My favorite snacks are included)
