Students of all levels of experience will be successful with these paintings.  Really. 

Students need to bring  Arches 140 lb cold press paper 7" x 15" and watercolors or purchase from me for $18. 

Other supplies needed are:  Pencil, eraser, permanent black marker or gel pen, Stabio black pencil, gold metallic marker or gel pen and your regular painting supplies.  

Most importantly, bring your creative spirit and openness to try something new.  I will have an outline of the woman to trace but no pattern packet.

The discounted price is due to the underwriting of our chapter and our commitment to share decorative painting with the community.
