Fall Schedule 2016





Dear Continuing or Prospective Student:


Had a good response and a wonderful time teaching the Spring/Summer Watercolor Tricks and Techniques class at the noon time slot.   Thanks to all who were able to participate!

Had a wonderful 6 week trip to Georgia, seeing family and friends, making art, swimming in beautiful Lake Sinclair and lots of hard work developing a new website to be up soon.

Beginning very soon in September/October, I will offer two 7 week Tuesday Albany watercolor classes:  Beginning/Continuing Watercolor at noon, and  in the evening,  Watercolor Tricks and Techniques.  Detailed course descriptions of these classes & dates & times are below.  No classes on October 18.

Although I plan to design and offer some future 2 to 3 week workshops in the Albany area, this will be the last time in the foreseeable future that I will be teaching 7 week watercolor classes in the Albany area, due to wanting to have the freedom to travel with my husband, now that he is retired.  So if you have wanted to take one of my 7 week watercolor classes or continue studying with me, now is a good time to do it!

As usual, anyone who is a returning student or who recruits a student to a class gets a free gift.  Advanced students or students who have taken previous classes with me can work independently in their choice of media in any class with individual help. Note: you do not have to be a “senior” to sign up for these classes.

If you are interested in one of these upcoming classes, please register as soon as you can, since classes must meet minimum enrollment in order to be held. Registration is sometimes possible at the class but only if enough students have registered before class start date, so the class does not cancel.

Check back with my website periodically. I may offer other classes in other locations or private/semi-private instruction in my studio in Walnut Creek. Hope to see you in class and have a wonderful Fall!

Listed below are course descriptions and schedules for these Fall classes I am scheduled to teach through the  City of Albany – Recreation and Community Services Department.
