$90 + Supply List

Class Limit: 15 Students


Learn how to paint a watercolour winter birch tree landscape using masking tape as a resist.

First, we will learn how to paint elements of the land in several small 2.5 x 3.5” size pieces. Then we will bring together and tackle all the learned elements in our larger final painting.

This class is a great introduction to watercolor painting if you have not painted before.
