Learn Watercolor Painting in Downtown Phoenix, AZ
You can start classes any time, and at YOUR level of painting skill. How? In your first class, Valerie gives you an exercise to evaluate your ability, then gives you a project that fits your level. As you work on your project, she watches your painting methods and evaluates your work. When you are ready for a specific technique, she demonstrates the method so you get the information YOU need when you are ready for it. She coaches you through techniques so you understand how watercolor flows, helping you overcome the tendency to overwork it. This allows you to learn watercolor at YOUR level, whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced student. Get to know other people with the same interests. Many students come again and again because this class is art therapy ~ a great way to get some time for yourself! Attendance Policy: If you need to reschedule a class, request a change of schedule two days or more before class, by email to [masked]. If you do not receive an email back stating that your class has been rescheduled, it is an automatic forfeit. If you cancel within 48 hours of class, it is an automatic forfeit. If you cannot make it, you can send someone in your place. Your consideration to the attendance policy is extremely important for reserving the room and keeping classes available. Important: Meet-up students attend classes but seldom commit on this site. That means the attendance count here on Meetup is never correct.
