Tony Conner Classes & Workshops

My Approach To Teaching and What Other Students Say

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.

My watercolor classes & workshops combine 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 each individual – meeting them where they are and helping them get to where they want to go.

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

Powerful and expressive paintings result from purposeful design and good technique – both subjects are covered in my classes.

I have watercolor painting classes that work for beginner, intermediate and advanced artists.
