“Watercolor for the FUN of it” with John Hopper- Wednesdays 6-8pm Studio 1

6 to 8pm.
John’s Wednesday evening class is always a hit with both
beginning and advanced watercolorists participating in a FUN and
relaxed adventure in watercolor painting with John providing a
variety of subjects, techniques and humor while you create
amazing watercolor paintings. A new innovation is the inclusion
of a Zoom connection in the classroom on your smartphone or iPad
that puts the close up of what John is doing right in front of you
along with easy to hear explanation brush stroke by brush stroke.
This continuing session of classes offers beginners an easy-going,
FUN and innovative approach to watercolor, and challenges more
accomplished watercolorists to experiment with innovative
techniques and subject matter from landscapes, seascapes, portraits
and still life to “Open Flow” abstracts. Come, get in on the FUN!

15th and runs through 10/20 evenings from 6 to 8pm. The six-class
