Observe and appreciate the natural world through art in this watercolor class. Bridgette Meinhold will teach you simple skills that take the complexity and intimidation out of making art in the outdoors and allow you to focus on documenting your feelings and observations. The goal is for each student to come away from the creative process happy with the act of painting, not necessarily the result.
