Note: this is a THREE-DAY series :) Nov 14, 15, & 16 // 5:30-9:30p

Welcome to Watercolor Textures, a three-day series class with Ana Victoria! In this class we will be creating amazing watercolor paintings using simple tools and activities which we will then apply to a final work of art. Each student will receive one on one guidance and will leave this class with a masterpiece of their own and new skills to integrate into future artwork. 

By the time we get to our final project you will be a pro at textures and will have the confidence to jump into a final illustration with full commitment. Your final project will be painting an animal and the environment surrounding it using as many textures as you can. I promise you’ll make something beautiful! 

Great for beginners and experienced artists as well.
