Garden Inspirations: Autumn Beauty Plein Air Watercolor Class with artist Sharon Pitts
All watercolor artists are welcome, from adventurous beginners to experienced painters! Four Tuesday afternoons we will paint in the magical Van Vleck gardens. Each week will be in a different location in the garden. The class will concentrate on fascinating discoveries inspired by the variety of settings, from floral to trees to trails and secret gardens. Each class includes a demonstration of techniques, questions answered and personal attention for each student. We will work in the indoor studio in case of inclement weather. Supply list will be sent after registration.
