Tuition: $100

*Some experience in watercolor is required. *Class size limited to 12 students, with a minimum of 6 students needed to hold the class. Upon registration, Janine will contact you with a supply list and further information.


In this all-day watercolor workshop, Janine will show you her method of painting and capturing the essence of birds as well as how she creates interesting, complementary backgrounds.


Janine will begin the day with examples and explanations of her process, followed by a demonstration of a planned background/underpainting. One-on-one assistance will follow as students work on their own compositions, transferring their images to the paper and then “playing” with color and water to create colorful foundations for their subject.

 Once the backgrounds are established, Janine will demonstrate her method of painting birds while providing explanations regarding value, color mixing, edges, control of water and pigment, positive and negative painting, lifting color, and so much more!

 During the remainder of the afternoon you will have plenty of painting time with assistance as needed. You will be encouraged to slow down and enjoy the process as some concepts may be new to you.
