Watercolor Workshop with The Freckled Hen Farmhouse

Watercolor Workshop with The Freckled Hen Farmhouse

I'm so excited to be a guest at the lovely Freckled Hen Farmhouse for a Sunday afternoon of watercolor painting. I hope you can join us!

My workshops are designed for the total beginner, so if you've never painted before, you're in the right place. Our main focus for this workshop will be autumn bouquets. The first part of the workshop will be dedicated to learning basic watercolor technique, from mixing color to using your paintbrush. We will then dive into exploring a variety of brush strokes and blending methods that can be used to capture a wide array of botanical shapes. By the end of the class, you'll have your own watercolor bouquet!

All you need to bring is your lovely self, maybe a friend, and everything else will be taken care of! Included in the cost of the workshop is a watercolor kit and supply list (so you don't have any excuse not to practice when you get home), as well as some light snacks. 

Space is limited, so grab a spot while you can. I hope to see you there!
