Botanical Watercolor Classes feature an experimental and exciting approach developed over two summers of playing with various plant materials and watercolor.  The sense of discovery in this process never grows old.  If you love nature and are curious to see ways to put exciting texture into your artwork with minimal use of your paintbrush, this may well be the most fun you've had in a long time!

Afternoon Painting Classes in my Katy, TX Studio

Impressionism/Post Impressionism Classes are now being offered Mondays, continuously, throughout the winter and spring.  Class is held in Katy, TX Monday afternoons 2-5 p.m. 
$30 per session.  Class size is extremely limited due to small studio size. Email lucholiz@gmail.com to check availability.  These classes fill quickly.




Let's explore together some of the most beautiful paintings ever painted and try our hand at painting while using some of these masters' techniques.  We will look at John Singer Sargent, Winslow Homer, Andre Derain, Pierre Bonnard and many others.  Using some of their ideas, we will take our own compositions beyond simply copying a photo reference and, instead, we will strive to create expressive and innovative works of art.  This is an  active and fun painting class to encourage experimentation with mediums and techniques.

Contact Susan for a suggested supply list.  You may work in your favorite mediums.
If you know others who might be interested in this class, please forward this email.
