watercolour workshop 2

Watercolour Magic Workshop

Sunday, February 21
10AM to 4PM

Barbara Hotson

Do you have watercolour materials sitting in a closet but just can’t get started again on your own? Did you start painting but stopped when the demands of life got in the way? Are you a watercolour enthusiast looking for one day of inspiration? This workshop is for you! Have fun splashing the paint on paper again and getting positive feedback. Barb will demo a painting that will review the techniques you thought you had forgotten – you will follow step by step as you get your painting memory back. You will “take a break” by doing some contour drawing and remembering how much fun that is. Barbara has been teaching watercolour at Artbarn for the past 10 years – check out her artwork at online.
