Workshop Description:

We are so excited to welcome Sarah Simon of @themintgardener as she teaches a hands-on watercolor painting workshop. She will also introduce you to incorporating ink and gouache into your botanically-themed piece, so you can incorporate these new mediums and skills into your collection of talents. 

You will spend the first half of the class learning fundamental painting techniques, and the second half of the class will be spent using your new skills to paint a piece (like the one pictured) that is already drawn by Sarah. You will be able to focus on your painting, so no drawing skills are required.

Sarah has a unique ability for using watercolor to paint the most captivating botanicals. And she loves to create the most approachable classroom experience for all of her attendees. Her tools, instructional worksheets and projects are hand-picked, fine-tuned and specially designed so everyone feels accomplished, proud and confident in their new skill sets. Sarah believes a workshop isn’t just a class, but an experience that should inspire creativity, connection and community.

This workshop is for beginners or experienced artists – anyone who is interested in learning the techniques and style of the watercolor art.

The class includes the following:

  • Sarah’s professional instruction on watercolor technique, botanical painting, shaping & fundamentals

  • Your completed watercolor art piece, as well as your completed Watercolor technique sheet

  • All the brushes, paint, and other supplies needed to complete your project, as well as a few extras to continue to create at home, including: a painting tray, watercolor paint, and extra watercolor paper of the highest quality (140 # weight 300 gsm Cold Press)

  • An Information Sheet listing all of Sarah's favorite supplies, brands and where to find them. 

  • A Pre-drawn Take-Home project created by Sarah 

Photos and videos taken during the workshop may be used on social media.
