    Watercolor Class

    This 8 week course will be offered starting Monday, December 14th  from 9:30-11:30am.  This class will be taught by Sharon Schmiedel who has a BFA in painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art and spent many years working in technical illustration, medical illustration, and graphic design. This class is open to students of all levels. We will explore the basic watercolor techniques of working wet on wet, layering, and dry brush.
