Make steady progress with weekly individual work and guided instruction

Consistent, applied work and practice is the best way to will help push your work to higher and higher levels of skill.

In this on-going series of studio classes, you’ll work along-side other watercolor painters and with the guidance of an experienced instructor.

Each class will focus on a particular facet of watercolor painting.  Watercolor is a unique and beautiful medium – with it’s own unique working properties and fundamental techniques.  We practice those fundamentals regularly while covering more advanced topics in color, design and composition.

Over this series of studio sessions, we’ll learn and practice the techniques and skills that will enable you to master the watercolor medium.

This series of studio sessions meets at the Taraden Gallery Barn, located at 183 Park Street, North Bennington, Vermont.

Note: there is a Park Street in Bennington, Vermont, the larger town to the south. If you are using GPS, make sure it recognizes 183 Park Street NORTH BENNINGTON. Else you will get lost and be delayed!
