Watercolor From The Beginning is a two-day workshop for anyone who has wanted to learn how to master the challenging media of watercolor, or would love a refresher from a fabulous instructor.

If you’ve tried watercolors and have been frustrated with your results, this class is for you! Over the weekend you will learn a variety of techniques to turn those frustrations into fun, providing you with a guide to working your way successfully through a painting from beginning to end.

Techniques covered include wet-on-wet, dry brush, masking, negative painting, use of salt, to name a few!

You have two (2) options for registration for this class. The “Full Meal Deal” includes all of your supplies and your cost is 25% off of retail choosing this option.

“Bare Bones” means you’ll bring what you need or purchase those items you need through Ephemera Paducah. We will have extras of everything in stock. If there are specific items you know you’ll need, email Kristin before October 20th. You will receive the 10% Workshop Discount off of any supplies you purchase from us!
