Have you been afraid to try this medium because you’ve always heard it was very difficult?

  • Bring a 9 x 12 in. (or larger) watercolor paper pad (140 lb. is best),
  • any brushes you may have,
  • a water spray bottle,
  • plastic palette that holds at least 12 colors.
  • Carolyn will supply paints for the first lesson and will also give you instructions as to which colors to purchase for future classes.
