Pet Portrait
August 26th at 1:30pm-4:30pm (EST)
via Zoom
This class will be happening on International Dog Day! The perfect time to explore host of techniques to help you paint perfect pet portraits (say THAT 3 times real fast!) We’ll explore painting smooth and curly fur and teeth, and talk about how to bring life into their eyes. <3 I promise, this will be a class that you will not want to miss. It’s such a fun lesson and one of my favorite subjects! 
Autumn Pumpkins
September 9th at 1:30-4:30pm (EST)
via Zoom

Autumn is that time of year where we begin to feel that crisp in the air, we start to look forward to the treats of fall like pumpkin pies, pumpkin spice lattes, and of course that annual visit to the pumpkin patch! Join me as we bring these autumnal fruits to life in our paintings. We will learn how to paint and create colorful shadows that create form, textures, and tell us clearly about the source of light. Bring your favorite fall treat to class (aka your computer table) and let’s celebrate this season of warmth and gratitude while we play in the paint together. 
Cezanne Inspired Still Life
September 23 at 1:30-4:30pm (EST)
via Zoom

Cezanne was a French and Post-Impressionist painter. He is known best for his intensely beautiful oil paintings, but did you know that he was also a watercolorist?! The impressionists referred to him as “the father of us all”. In this class we’ll learn more about the master, and I’ll show you a technique I’ve developed that helps us to mimic his oil paintings in watercolor! To achieve that “Cezanne flair” we will work from dark to light…a classic oil painting approach. This class will grow your skills as well as your appreciation for Cezanne’s beautiful artwork. Come, be inspired! 
Butterflies in a Bunch
October 7th at 1:30-4:30pm (EST)
via Zoom

In this class we’ll play in the paint together again as we learn how to create these ethereal creatures in a whimsical style. We will take this lesson to learn and explore the colors on our palettes, to get acquainted with their transparency, and to exploit that understanding to convey a sense of translucency to the butterly wings! Once we know the nature of our colors, we can harness the power of painting in layers and use watercolor’s transparent nature to our advantage! We’ll also work around the color wheel to reinforce our understanding of how to pair colors for the most beautiful results. 
Lowcountry Landscape
October 21 at 1:30-4:30pm (EST)
via Zoom

These marsh landscape visions are an absolutely mesmerizing part of the landscape along our coast. They convey peace and solitude in such a special way and collectors are always looking for more. 
Painting this landscape will give us another opportunity to explore the painting of textures. This time we will paint nature’s varying landscape textures. I’ll show you a bunch of techniques for painting leaves, Spanish moss, grasses, and clouds. This class is loaded with content, and I just know that you’ll come away with lots of new tricks that will be useful in all your future landscapes.
