Learn to Paint Watercolor Botanicals

August 21, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

We’re Excited to Have Artist Renée from Hopscotch Art Back In Our Creative Workspace at Curate Mercantile to Teach Watercolor Painting!


Have you always wanted to paint leaves and flowers with watercolors? Are you drawn to loose botanical paintings on greeting cards and all over social media? Then this workshop is for you!

This beginner-friendly 2-hr class will teach you the basics of watercolor painting, a variety of brushstrokes, and fun tips and techniques. Then step-by-step we will paint a sunflower, eucalyptus leaves, and a coneflower together. You’ll receive demonstrations in an encouraging and enjoyable environment. No drawing is necessary.

Please note that part of the workshop will require getting up close together to view the project in progress from your instructor Renée Reese, owner of Hopscotch Art, so you may feel more comfortable bringing along a facemask to wear during this portion of the class.

All materials will be provided for you to use in class. The watercolor paint set will be yours to keep, as well as helpful handouts to take with you. Please join us for a fun, creative workshop!

DATE: Saturday, August 21st from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

PRICE (all materials included): $65 per person includes hands-on instruction and all materials and supplies to use during the class. The watercolor set will be yours to take home.

ABOUT YOUR INSTRUCTOR: Renée Reese is the artist behind ‘Hopscotch Art’ paintings, calligraphy and greeting cards, which are featured at Curate Mercantile.
