Watercolor Classes

Would you like to take some beginning watercolor classes?  I have two new choices for you that I'll be teaching in person at my studio in Olalla.  If you are interested in either of these and want to find out the dates and times, contact me at BethOwenWatercolors@gmail.com or call 253-514-1865.  CURRENT CLASSES ARE FULL.   CHECK BACK OCTOBER 2024!

 A Taste of Watercolor:  2 hour single class for people who aren’t sure if they want to do watercolors or not but think it might be fun to try it out. Supplies are provided.    $40.   

 We’ll make 4 small landscapes that will let you “test run” some watercolor supplies and learn a few basic watercolor techniques, including: 

 --How to do wet on wet washes 

 --How to paint wet on dry

 --How to do paint different values (ie, light versus dark) using watercolor 

 --How to create clouds by lifting color with a paper towel 

 --How to create water blooms on purpose 

 --A brief introduction to using masking fluid 

 My hope is that you will decide that you love watercolors after taking this class! 

 Introduction to Watercolor Course:  This course is for anyone that wants to learn or brush up on basic watercolor techniques.   6 weeks, one class per week (approximately 2 hours long.)   We will be packing in a lot of information and working together on a series of fun exercises and paintings.  Our pace will be fairly fast so come prepared to get to work!

 $240 for the course, or $200 if they’ve previously taken “A Taste of Watercolor” class from me.   Students bring their own paper and supplies.
