Classes with Carla Gauthier
Watercolor, Drawing

Painting, for me, is an opportunity to make sense of an increasingly visual world. I get to enjoy the image making process, choosing the contrast, color and light that suit the subject at hand and the story being told. It is a pursuit which has its challenges and successes, but it is about the process, the small gains made along the way.

Intermediate/Advanced Watercolor Class

Pack up your supplies and your inspiration and take your work to a new level. This class will focus less on basic technique and more on nurturing your unique painting voice. While working on your own personal subject matter, we will focus on ideas like creating a variety of edges, fresh compositions, bold color combinations and working in a series. Classes will run from 9:30 – 12:30 and will include time for daily group critiques.

Mondays 9:30am–12:30pm
4 week session  $120

Beginner/Intermediate Watercolor Class

Take the sting out of learning watercolor by learning basic steps to build successful paintings. In this class we will cover everything from basic paint and paper choices, simple washes and texture techniques, creating contrast, composition, color theory and order of steps to help build your confidence using this media. Supply list is minimal, and will be provided to you upon registration. You will also have opportunity to try different materials that I bring to share.

Mondays 1:30pm– 4:30pm
4 week session  $120

Come experience painting with open acrylics. The class will be very much guided and will show you the process I use for beautiful still life paintings.
