Tony Conner Classes & Workshops

How I Teach, On-line Class Information and Student Testimonials

What to expect in my watercolor classes & workshops

Above all, you’ll experience a class that is both fun and informative. It is my earnest desire to help every student to grow and learn quickly.

During class, I offer demonstrations, one-on-one instruction and objective advice in a way that allows students at all ability levels to make great progress in a very short time.

My approach focuses on providing information and insights to increase understanding and proficiency. 

Fundamental skills are important, particularly for a tricky medium like watercolor. So every class and workshop has a focus on the fundamentals, presented in a way that makes them simple and understandable.
