Question from Any
Will I be able to paint a picture I bring?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! Yes, you can. The class starts off with technical demonstrations on how to work with watercolor and then the group will paint a landscape. So it would be best to bring a landscape image. Hope this helps!

I had never used watercolors before and had never taken a painting class. By the end of it, I had discovered a new activity that I could play with, and on a personal level I recognized my old perfectionism trying to reassert itself. By allowing myself to paint and not be concerned with doing it “right” or “perfectly,” I gained not only the enjoyment of experimenting with paints, but also a feeling of satisfaction knowing I hadn’t cheated myself out of a lovely experience. Claire was a wonderfully encouraging teacher!

It was a fun class. I do not recommend buying paint supplies through them (could have gotten the same supplies cheaper on Amazon). I do wish we could have gone over more techniques, as we just freestyled a landscape. Overall, enjoyable experience!
