Painting with Elizabeth

Watercolor, Pastel & Oil Painting Classes

Who are the Classes For?

The classes are designed for beginning to advanced students, but no previous instruction is required. Everyone is welcome to join the classes and learn how to use watercolor, pastels, or oil paint.  

All materials and supplies are provided as part of the registration fee: paper, canvases, paint, pastels and brushes. Coffee and tea are complimentary.

What Will I Learn?

Students will learn how to use watercolors in conjunction with other materials for excellent results in a mixed media approach to painting or can decide to use watercolors alone. 

Painting with oils is also available with classic oil painting instruction. However, all painting instruction demonstrates how to mix colors, understand composition, learn a variety of painting techniques, and how to frame finished compositions.
