Watercolor Classes

Would you like to take a watercolor class?

It's my joy to offer watercolor workshops on location in my art room.  In the past, I've had the pleasure of watching children and adults grow in their fascination with watercolor painting.



At this time, I am not offering online classes.  I look forward to making online classes available as some time in the future.  I will be adding a blog post soon for those interested in learning more about watercolor painting.  While I may not be able to teach online or on location for the present, I am very willing to give some suggestions for other options.  Thank you for the emails showing interest...when others reach out with requests for lessons, I do count it a great compliment.  It's hard to say no; I would love to teach and yet it would be too much for me to add one more thing to my schedule now.


One-On-One Private Art Class Sessions

If you have interest in private one-on-one art lessons for children (ages 6 and up) or adults, I offer private sessions (120 minutes) for $40, supplies provided.  In order to work between sessions, you may need to purchase art supplies to have at home.  Private sessions can meet once a week, once every two weeks, or once a month.  Private sessions are customized to take in personal interest and skill level.  I take great interest in making the watercolor exploration fit the student and that keeps the creative experience alive.  The student feels inspired to create more and is able to build on the previous skills mastered.  Please contact me at christysheeler.artist@gmail to let me know you'd like to get a session time reserved.  

Adult Watercolor Workshops

Watercolor sessions for 4-8 people:  I will offer a full day or two-evening workshop which will cover a specific subject and/or techniques.  The art workshops will be 6 hours in total length.  The cost is $65 with supplies provided.  The cost is $55 if you bring your own watercolor art supplies.  You'll receive a list of art supplies needed for the workshop.  Two 8" x 10" sheets of 140 lb. watercolor paper will be included in $65 workshop price.  Additional sheets of 140 lb. watercolor paper will be available for my cost/shipping fee.  These workshops take place here in my art room as well.  For full day workshops, you'll need to bring a lunch.  I'll provide the water, coffee, and tea.  You'll be able to watch me demonstrate with watercolors for a deeper understanding of this medium. I'll share with you the tidbits of watercolor's personality for better creative planning and process. Watercolor pigment and water are quite unpredictable at first!  You'll have a great time trying out these techniques with a brush in your hand!  Ask plenty of questions and spur on more discussion and demonstration.  Be fearless and courageous as you get to develop your own watercolor style.  Once you become better versed in its tendencies, you'll have more confidence and boldness for your own creativity.

With popularity of group workshops, a deposit of $20 or full payment in advance may be necessary to reserve your place in the class.  This will help me to guarantee a minimum number needed to hold class and prevent no-shows on the day of class.  Cash, check, and credit card payment accepted.  I am able to take credit cards through the Square app.

I'll be posting on Facebook and Instagram once a class is available for sign-ups.  If you would like to be contacted by phone or email, please contact me at christysheeler.artist@gmail.com and you'll be sure to get a personal invite for a class.  

I look forward to having you explore watercolor with great enjoyment here in my art room!
