Each October, I like to offer an adult watercolor class that explores the colors and themes of autumn. This year we painted pumpkins and loose florals after we created a fun swatch of autumn colors. My Koi watercolor pan sets, though very affordable, never disappoint in their rich, saturated colors. My goal is to teach students how to properly load their brushes with the right paint:water ratio, and then how to use the brushes to their full potential. That's where the magic happens.
Each student has her own flair with the paints, even though I demonstrate "my way" of painting. I LOVE encouraging individuality within a framework. I try to model laughing at yourself and reframing "mistakes." And I enjoy simply spending time with women who make creative expression a priority.
