Watercolor Class

The class is going strong on Monday nights 6 to 8:30 at Pat Catan's in Strongsville.

We usually set up one or two (or three, depending on the amount of students) still life arrangements and we paint from life. Students also have the option of bringing in their own reference material to paint from. Sometimes I do a demonstration painting, sometimes the students paint the whole time with me giving tips as needed. The arrangements are lit with a spot light, so everyone gets good subject matter to paint.

Photos are taken of the still life so students can continue their work at home, as the arrangement is unique to that night.

The store is loaded with artificial flowers, fruit, vases, baskets, etc. It's quite a setup and is unique as far as I know in the Cleveland area. When you sign up, there's only a commitment for two classes, so feel free to call or stop in. (440) 238-7318
