Sharpening your drawing skills will always help in all other areas of your artistic interests, whether oil, acrylic, watercolor, or even sculpting. Learning to draw is the best way to train your eyes and improve your paintings. No prior experience necessary. Learning to draw is as much a skill as learning to write - no "talent" necessary! Our class focuses on drawing from life using graphite, charcoal, or colored pencil. Beginner students are given specific exercises to complete. Once comfortable, students are encouraged to choose their own subjects. Most work from photos for more variety of subject, but working from life is always preferred. Please keep in mind that the nature of drawing is unlike painting. Drawing is a marathon; painting is more like a sprint by comparison. Progress is slow, results take a long time, and patience is definitely a virtue!

Kathy has been teaching watercolor painting for almost ten years. She really enjoys teaching and learning along with her students. Her students are able to work on the project she is presenting or they are free to work on their own painting when they choose to.
Kathy presents basic watercolor skills and the techniques to achieve them. In her classes she provides information to the students and demonstrates specific techniques. She then allows her students to work on their paintings with individual attention when needed.
In Kathy's classes you can develop your watercolor painting skills, explore new ways of expressing yourself as well as discover your unique individual style.
Kathy maintains a positive attitude and encourages her students to have fun with painting!
