Small Format Watercolor Workshop - January 3, 2024

   

Small Format Watercolor Workshop 


Join us January 3, 2024 at 6:30pm PST


Ready to have a fun hour or two with other creatives painting watercolor? We had a great time in December so let’s do it again! Live online and interactive.


In this workshop “small” means 5x7”, 8x10”, 9x12”


You may want to choose the smaller format for three reasons:

  1. Limited display space.
  2. Cost of framing.
  3. Practice for a larger composition.

Join me from the comfort of your own home on Wednesday, Jan 3, 2024 at 6:30pm PST

Paint along, ask questions about watercolor materials, methods, etc. Get some unique tips and hacks from experienced artists.


Wednesday, January 3, 2024

6:30 PM – 8:30 PM PST

Live from Michele’s NW Studio via Zoom


All levels,  Ages 14 through adult

Tuition: $45 for a 2hr. class on Zoom, replays available 

Payable by Zelle, check 


What color scheme would you choose?
Original watercolor by Michele Cooper (5x7”)

Message me on my Instagram/Facebook or email me (michelec12@gmail.com) with YOUR NAME AND EMAIL to get access to our live interactive watercolor workshop on Zoom.


What’s next?

After I receive your tuition, name and email address, I will send you preliminary instructions and handouts.

Wednesday, January 3, 2024

6:30pm PST
