Watercolor Studio All New!
Instructor, Barbara Boulka, continues the Watercolor
Studio with all “NEW” paintings in every session,
done in a fun and relaxing atmosphere! Learn to
use water media to paint a wide variety of unique
and beautiful paintings. We will explore different ways to use watercolor (alone and in
combination with other paints and materials). Basic rules of design and composition
will be taught. You will learn at your own pace through one-on-one instruction during
the hands-on period of each class. Continuing, as well as beginning students are
welcome anytime. Patterns provided. No drawing skills required. A materials fee
of $15.00 is payable to the instructor and a supply list will be mailed about one week
before class. This is a fun, relaxing class that you’re sure to enjoy!

Here are some of the paintings we may do: scenes from Italy, flowers, watercolor
with watercolor crayons, pencils and/or ink, collage, watercolor and acrylic, wet into
wet watercolor, landscapes and universe scenes, abstracts, negative painting, holiday
themes, and more. If you have something special you want to do, let me know and
we’ll see if we can make it happen.
