Watercolor is wonderful flowing colorful media. It almost immediately captures all imaginations, life experience, your mood and inspiration. This class will start from the basics and grow our skills. The supplies are minimal: paper, watercolor, brushes and water. Painting quickly is the goal. We will try to lose some of controlled brushwork to make watercolors show their best advantages.

In this all-inclusive class I will provide you with the techniques, tools, and materials, as well as tips, tricks, and pointers to make your own unique, beautiful pieces.

After learning the basics of beaded jewelry, it’s exciting to expand your options by learning to work with wire. The design possibilities are endless with this versatile medium. In this all-inclusive four week class, you will make wire embellishments, rings, and pendants, which will give your creations a unique artistic flair. The sky is the limit once you’ve learned to capture a stone, shell, glass piece, or anything else that strikes your fancy using these techniques!
