Come out and enjoy painting in the best studio ever, the great outdoors!  Painting with watercolor can be so much fun when you have a basic understanding of how to work with the medium. It is spontaneous and predictable all rolled into one! 

This class will help you feel more confident while painting, from laying out the initial drawing to figuring out when to declare the painting finished. Gentle feedback will make you feel at ease so you can enjoy the process. Each session will meet at a designated location. The class begins with group instruction and a demonstration then transitions to independent work and one-on-one instruction.

This is an open level watercolor class that will focus on a variety of techniques and concepts that will help participants grow as painters and gain confidence with watercolor. Students may benefit from having some basic knowledge of painting with watercolor prior to these workshops. A maximum of 12 students will be accepted. The minimum number to run the class is 5 students. Please contact River Arts for registration. Stop in at 36 Elm St. Damariscotta or call (207) 563-6868. Payment is due at registration.
