This is a series of four class sessions held on consecutive Mondays, August 5, 12, 19 and 26. You can register for the whole series or, alternatively, sign up for any number of individual classes (see calendar listings on those dates below).

Seeing and painting the garden en plein air is the subject of this class. Students of all levels are welcome in either or both sessions; no experience is necessary. The first session will focus on drawing forms, finding compositions and simple, direct color schemes.  Composition will be stressed. Each class will begin with an introduction and demonstration by the instructor and then move into the garden to paint, with the instructor circulating among the students to provide input and answer questions. You may attend the whole series or pick and choose individual classes; however, everyone is encouraged to attend the first meeting, when the basics of watercolor, paint, brushes and paper will be explained.
