Supplies:  $42.00 payable to Kath on the first day of the workshop for paint set, paper, water soluble pen, manual and water container. She will have a kit for everyone  in the sizes recommended to make the painting experience as easy as possible. Using your own supplies is ok, but not recommended.  The majority of students choose to purchase the kit.  She will bring extra things (such as her custom designed fanny pack to compactly hold these supplies), that are a pleasure but not essential!

Day one:  basic technique and landscape, finishing within 25 minutes. Perspective of contrast, color and focal point.  Techniques from John Singer Sargent’s watercolors.  
Day two:  still life, people and color. 

Day three: probably on location, plein air, using the technique fearlessly.  Interactive critiques and demonstrations are both given constantly in a very positive, personal atmosphere. Instruction is geared to individual needs of each person so each achieves their goal. 

This workshop is ideal for timid beginners who want to fearlessly paint in public, and perfect for experienced artists who want mobility, minimal equipment and no clean-up. 
Learn enough to play for a lifetime!
