WATERCOLOR CLASSInstructor Becky Peebles

Watercolors by Helen Smathers

The weekly watercolor classes with Becky Peebles are structured for beginners through advanced students. Each class is $35 per session. There is no advanced registration since these are ongoing classes.

Starting with loose washes and progressing to details, you will learn Becky's technique which could be described as realism with a dash of Impressionism (or soul!). Beginners through Advanced are welcome to attend.

Every other session begins with Becky demonstrating a particular technique, leading the class step by step. After this warm-up, the class will move on to individual work. Each demo is independent of the one before and after... you are never behind, even if you miss a class. The sessions in which there is no demo are to allow students to develop individual style with hands-on guidance.

There is no advance registration... these are ongoing classes.

Dates: every Thursday
Time: 1:00 till 4:00pm
Place: Center Art Studio
Cost: $35 per session
Skill level: Beginners through Advanced are welcome to attend
RegistrationDeadline: On-going
