Spring has sprung and its a great time to get back into the creative flow! Anyone that has taken a watercolor class before is welcome to join these sessions that include all levels of painters.

Afterwards, everyone paints from their own photos, while Robin circulates the room offering help as needed.

Painting Children in Watercolorwith Robin Poteet
4 classes: Thursday & Friday June 24–25 and Thursday & Friday July 1–2 • 9:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m. • $150
Robin shows you how to capture the magic of childhood in an information-packed class that’s also LOTS OF FUN! We’ll take it step by step, delving into drawing, proportion, skin tone, shadow, and capturing a likeness. We’ll practice things like the “big blur” and the “big scary thing”. Plus, we’ll explore how to make the best background choices. Bring good-quality photos of grandchildren, nieces, nephews, even historic photos of children, and we’ll analyze them to find your best composition. Instruction includes both portrait and full figure. Use form at left to contact Robin for suggested supplies.register_button


Pen & Ink + a Splash of Watercolorwith Robin Poteet
2 classes: Friday & Saturday, July 16–17 • 9:00 a.m.–noon • $60 (includes photos and handouts)
Draw–Splash–Create! It’s that easy when you combine pen & ink & watercolor. We’ll start with exercises to loosen up and practice drawing styes—lines, hatch marks, squiggles, and scribbles that can be used in final sketches. Then we’ll move on to various subjects… architecture, people, landscape, animals, etcetera. You might choose to leave your pieces in just pen & ink, or paint watercolor on top—Robin will show you how. These are fun pieces that make great gifts, postcards and framed miniature works of art. You’ll have time to create multiple pieces, or to focus on a single detailed piece. Use form at left to contact Robin for suggested supplies.register_button


New Life for Old Paintingswith Robin Poteet (all media)
1 class: Thursday, August 19 • 9:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m. • $40 (includes glues and some extra bits and bobs)
Pull out those old paintings that, for whatever reason, didn’t turn out—the more, the better! This class will start with group brainstorming and creative thinking, then we’ll help each other turn our duds into mini-masterpieces. Greeting cards, boxes, weavings, abstracts, collages, even trading art “parts” with your fellow students are just a few possibilities. Guaranteed Success and lots of fun! Use form at left to contact Robin upon registration for materials to bring.register_button

Seashells by the Seashorewith Robin Poteet (watermedia)
3 classes: Wednesday–Friday, August 25, 26, 27 • 9:00 a.m.–noon • $95
We may not be visiting the shore in person this year, but we can certainly enjoy painting the wonders of the sea… shells, starfish, sand dollars, driftwood and bits of coral. We’ll start with a focus on drawing and Robin encourages you to paint LARGE! She’ll provide several photo choices, or bring your own to class (if you have some actual shells, that’s even better)! Robin paints and demos in watercolor, but watermedia students are welcome! As you paint you’ll learn about making subtle color shifts, the importance of shading & shadows and how to make wet sand look like—well, wet sand. There’s a great benefit to being able to focus on art 3 days in a row. Use form at left to contact Robin for suggested supplies.register_button
