Painting by my student, Mary Weidner -
titled "Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow"
Yes, this painting was completed in one of my watercolor classes by one of my students, Mary Weidner. This is presented with the hope that you realize what is possible with watercolor. And what YOU might be capable of doing yourself. Even if you never thought of yourself as an "Artist".While this piece is really fabulous (IMHO), this student is not the ONLY student of mine that has reached this pinnacle of achievement. Maybe YOU will be next.
MARCH CLASSES ARE OVER, AND THE ONLY OPENINGS FOR MAY CLASSES ARE for the Monday afternoon class. The Monday Afternoon class meets at 1:30-4PM, begins 5/20/13 and continues for 8 consecutive weeks. The cost for a class is $195 - and you can rent materials for the 8 week class for an additional $20 but you don't have to pay for that until class starts.
You can sign up here:
You can ALWAYS send an email to email@example.com and make a request to be added to my email list. I will then email you whenever there are openings available in the future. Current students always have priority in signing up for the next class, so sometimes there are no openings in one or more classes.

What Makes My Watercolor Wow Classes Different:
I teach the nuts and bolts of watercolor. If you have had other watercolor teachers, I can almost guarantee that my classes will be really different. For one thing, I only take 6 students per class, so I can see what is happening with your work, and we discuss EVERYTHING about watercolor - art, composition, pretty much anything you like.
New students start on a project of my choosing, but after that, you are free to work on stuff I choose, or what you want to bring in - with some guidance by me (you may not want to work on a complicated group portrait as your second project if you are not ready yet for such a difficult subject). We cover choosing paint, paper, mixing colors, choosing colors, and deconstructing an image so that you can layer transparent color and wind up with what you envision - or even better than you thought. And of course, my big thing is HOW TO CONTROL WATERCOLOR (almost), plus how to fix those unplanned messes that happen when you're not looking.
We have a really good time in class (just ask my current students), and while it takes a while and some patience to really understand watercolor and make it do what YOU want it to do and it generally takes more than one 8 week class to get proficient - anybody with a burning desire to wrestle the heart out of watercolor, and the willingness to learn the basics can master this art medium.
WHERE: All Classes meet at The Coffee Gallery 2029 N. Lake Ave., Altadena, CA 91001 - just up the road from Pasadena.
WHEN: See the specifics above.
If there are any questions, call me at 626-344-3488. There are no refunds after the first class meeting.
You can even "rent" materials so you do not have to purchase your own materials for class. Just let me know you want to rent, and it will be an extra $20 per 8 week class payable on the first day of class - or you can purchase your own equipment -
Here is the link to the material list.
General miscelaneous class policies:
No refunds after the first class in a series.
It MAY be possible to make up a missed class, but you must make it up within one week of the class missed. You can go to any of my other classes to make up a class, but ONLY IF THERE IS ROOM. Please let me know ahead of time if you know you will miss a class - someone may want that space to makeup a class they missed. I cannot guarantee that you will be able to make up classes, so please try to sign up for classes with that in mind.
If there are any problems, questions, or you just want to chat about watercolor, art, etc., call me at 626-344-3488.
