Watercolor Classes and Workshops Colorado Springs

Lorraine Watry Watercolor Workshop ©

I have just finished setting up my 2014 Summer Watercolor Classes and Workshops. As you can see from the image above. I use a video camera and tv screen at my home studio classes to film and provide a view of what I am working on for my students. My classes are small, usually limited to 6 students. Thus, I can give lots of individual attention to each student. I find with watercolor that the students learn best when they can see a demonstration, so I demonstrate often.

2014 Summer Classes and Workshops:
1st Monday of the month Open Studios - 1hr from 6-7pm

Watercolor Classes for Beginners - Thursdays, 6-9pm, June 19 to August 7

Shadows As A Subject Watercolor Workshop - June 28 and 29

Background Figures Watercolor Workshop - July 18, 19, 20

Shiny Metal Watercolor Workshop - August 8, 9, 10

Water Reflections, Hard Edged and Colorful Watercolor Workshop - August 22, 23, 24

Watercolor Classes

Monet Reflections  LWatry©
This is my demo painting from a recent watercolor class on painting waterlilies. The students learned how to create glowing lily flowers, how to paint their reflections in the water, saving whites, beautiful greens for lily pads, and layering of washes to enhance the scene.

Below is an image with the students and some of their waterlily paintings. We really enjoyed getting to know each other and further our knowledge of watercolor.

My new summer class listings will be out soon. The classes will include a Beginning watercolor class and several 2 and 3 day workshops for beginning to advanced students, from June to August.
