This class is for beginners only, who want to learn basic skills in sketching and watercolor art.

Artwork often will be finished outside of class. Participants will need drawing pencils: numbers 2B, 4B, 5B, 6B, 7B or 8B, and 2H, 3H or 4H; a sketching pad of 80 lb. weight drawing paper; a kneadable eraser; one small and one large stump and a small scrap of sandpaper.
