Note: Some of the organizations which host my watercolor painting classes are on hold, due to the pandemic. I am happy to offer the classes below. I am working on other offerings, so keep checking here for more classes!
Comments from my last workshop:
"Couldn't have been better. The individual help, combined with open and friendly class instruction, made the experience top-notch."
"Peg's classes are always fun. Come ready to learn, and leave as a better paint!"

We seldom learn about one of the most important aspects of painting in watercolor: designing paintings that use the white of the paper. Yet this skill can help your paintings have a better range of values, and a real “WOW” factor! When whites are prominent in a watercolor painting, the painting can have a contemporary, and often peaceful, look. Peg will show you how to plan your painting, using a small value sketch. She will discuss designing paintings by “weaving” whites into the design. She will demonstrate various ways to “save” the white of the paper. You will choose the subject matter you would like to paint. Peg will offer demonstrations, a color worksheet, and individual help. Most students will complete two small paintings during this class.
