Watercolor Art Lessons Class

with LK Papadakis, Local Artist

Spark your creativity by learning new painting skills! Painting sessions scheduled for several weeks this fall will introduce the beginner to oil or acrylic paints with a choice of projects to make. Choose one of the five options listed below to get started immediately and learn to follow through the steps of painting at your own pace in our multi-sessions. (Most paintings will take 2 or 3 sessions)


Paint Options:

1. Purple Prickly Pear

2. Celtic Owl

3. Foothill Landscape (Autumn Walk or Fall Fields)

4. Sunflower

5. Old Oak Tree


L. K. will teach techniques for painting, color mixing, layering, among the many processes of working on an image. The five projects can be painted in oil or acrylic paint, and each has a specific set of materials to complete it.


If you have painted before we recommend bringing the supplies you have. If you are brand new we recommend not buying supplies before class and LK will work with you to select the right colors and brushes to fit the painting style and subject you'd like to start with.
