"Making a Scene with Watercolor"

Instructor: Steve Kleier

Offered in partnership with the Oregon Society of Artists


There is something magical about painting watercolor scenes of travels and favorite places.  Natural landscapes and urban scenes make great subjects for painting, both are full of interest and great stories. I will do a morning and an afternoon demo both days. After that I will be available for individual instruction as you work.   Even though the subjects are very different land and city scenes have a lot in common when you know what to look for. Learn and expand your skills with this fun and inspiring class.
