Here’s what some of my students had to say about their experience taking the Introduction to Watercolour class:

1- What did you most enjoy about this class?
I enjoyed the small class size that allowed for a lot of interaction with Cathy for feedback and assistance.  It was also very laid back and comfortable atmosphere to paint in.  Cathy is very patient and very positive and I was always excited to be painting again.
2-What was your biggest accomplishment?
Pushing past the “ugly duckling” stage of a painting because I felt confident enough that I could finish it and make it something I am proud of.

1- What did you most enjoy about this class?
The relaxed vibe. The small group. The essential techniques. And the support one on one.
2-What was your biggest accomplishment?
I really enjoyed making things look 3D via using values of the same color. And creating perspective in a landscape.
Thank you Cathy it was so much fun and I learned a lot as well! Still have a lot of learning to do but as much as possible I will try and keep it up and remember all the things you have taught me.
