Tweet-tweet! New Watercolor class!

Whimsical Birds
Project 1

I’m very excited to announce a brand new class with pop-surreal artist and illustrator Cori Derfus.

I met Cori 5 years ago through Artist Collective I used to be a part of, and constantly fell in love with her style. Her paintings integrate pieces of her past with current reflections on
relationships with people, animals and our natural world. Her paintings have been sold and
exhibited worldwide.
Cori currently resides in the Pacific Northwest, US. She received a BFA in painting from the
University of Wisconsin- Oshkosh and works out of a studio in her home that she shares with a
menagerie of critters, both real and make-believe.

In this class students will walk through three different simple watercolor bird paintings.
We will transfer a sketch onto watercolor paper, shade the sketch using multiple pencils and apply watercolor with a basic palette, practicing mixing paints.
Students will end up with three paintings and the basic skills to paint with watercolors.

Who is this course for?
For everyone who wants to learn how to paint with watercolors!
Great for beginners! 
! We included the sketches of all the projects that you can trace.
No previous experience in drawing and painting is required.
