Artistic abilities of all levels are encouraged. This is a sketching/watercolor workshop.
My most favorite sketches and watercolors come to life in this darling little workshop. One of my favorite ways to teach is through the things that inspire me daily! With the stories from the blessed barnyard (my home studio), we will be hope-filled with encouragement as we playfully sketch from our wanderlust hearts (I make it so simple for you - you will be amazed at your new sketches). With each step we learn fanciful ideas to try in our daily practice, too. With a love of watercolors, I will introduce you to all kinds of palettes to paint the sketches we create together. We will also try our hand at charcoals, inks, and aquarelles. You will love this little collection of goodies and will be thrilled with the art journal you take home.
