Saugatuck is my sanctuary and is filled with art and wonder. Rain or shine, we will keep warm with a hot bevvie or cool off with a cold one. The plan is to meet and go over watercolor basics- bring yourselves and I'll supply students with paper, paints + brushes. Learn to paint the legendary tulips or become the Cezanne of Saugatuck- getting to act like a local and having a painting to take home! Whether it's brushing up on your old painting skills, learning to paint as a beginning or an outing with your friends- we will have fun!
Hi! I am a designer, a painter and love nature-oriented travel. I moved to the Saugatuck area from Chicago and am very active in the arts- i am also a fifth generation "cottager". I enjoy both watercolor and oil painting and my style is a fresh version of impressionism. My paintings and designs work their ways into my textile, carpet and lighting designs that have been commercially produced and sold around the world.
I'll provide brushes, watercolors and paper!
Currently teaching in the Valley called "Watercolor basics and holiday fun" !! Sites that are my favs will become yours to paint as you become a "local" for groups of 4-6 special site visits can be arranged (vineyards, big red lighthouse in holland, etc) Rain or shine we will keep warm with a hot bevvie or cool off with a cold one :-) We will paint en plein aire (outdoors) and learn techniques you and your friends can take home to share
no prior experience in watercolor painting necessary- wear comfortable shoes and clothes. The class will cancel if there are less than 3 guests booked. If you would like to book a semi private class for $300 and $200 respectively please contact me.
