I am excited. Are you excited? Summer is over and we are going to dive into some awesome art. Swim with watercolors, flow with the joy of the colors. And its easy. Really! I'll demonstrate and you will go home with a finished painting.

Do you want 2 classes a month during this season? Let me know. It might be possible.

Have fun and sign up today! RSVP.

Thanks, Lynette ... Lynettewoodartist.com

[b]BASIC SUPPLY LIST FOR OUR WATERCOLOR CLASS...[/b]

You can get these supplies before the class at Michaels or JoAnns. Also feel free to bring your own art supplies. You will need these:
1. Paint -  Tubes of watercolor paint. I suggest a small basic set for beginners. Prices start at $4.99.2. Palette - Watercolor pallete. A good size rectangular plastic one at 2.99. Not a small one.3. Water - Square plastic water tub. $1 at the dollar store. Should hold 8-12 oz of water.4. Brush - Start with 1 round pointed tips brush. size 6. Later add a wide flat for washes. [u]Please don't buya set of brushes before you see examples of the correct brushes in our class.[/u]5. Watercolor Paper - Buy a pad of Strathmore Watercolor Paper. Often on sale. Min size 8x10"6. Pen - 1 Sharpey Black Pen in Super Fine Point + sharp Pencil + Eraser7. Clean up. -  Paper towels + 5 sheets of white paper for scratch paper + a few kleenex.


Thats it. Thats all you need to start creating some wonderful art. And you will do a full painting in each class.We have a nice small group that gets together and paints. I teach art, lead the class, provide demonstrations and guide you in your art so that it grows. Plus I share some of the tips I've learned in art school.  A couple of our members have been in the class for over a year. This is a great way to get out of your head and into a creative space. You tend to forget about what time it is, whats going on in the world and just go with the flow of the watercolors.


In this high tech society there is something wonderful about holding a good paint brush in your hand and creating a piece of art on heavy 140lb watercolor paper.

While I teach and guide, I want everyone to create their own artistic voice. We are all artists.So come join us and have a good time. Lets be creative! Let's play!
