Wow, Wow, Watercolor Classes Here in SaddleBrooke

Cactus flower painting by instructor Renee Pearson

Connie Kotke

Watercolor is not a medium to be totally controlled. Certain colors act a certain way when placed on paper, and many things happen on dry and wet surfaces that cannot be explained. Watercolor’s beauty is unleashed as colors respond to your own personal emotions.

Come explore the joy of painting with watercolors at one or more of these upcoming classes sponsored by the SaddleBrooke Fine Arts Guild. Hop in your golf cart or car for a short jaunt to the Topaz Room at the MountainView Arts and Crafts Center for a class taught by experienced instructors right here in our own community!
