Tiny Garden Watercolor Workshop

Spring is almost gone, but the world is still in bloom. Anyone can take a picture of all these nice flowers, but I bet you’ve always wanted to be able to paint them. Well now you’re in luck! “Tiny Gardens” is a basic watercolor class taught by local painter Martin Swift focusing on our floral friends.

You will learn basic watercolor techniques including brush handling, color mixing, and some sneaky tips so you don’t make a huge mess. Towards the end of class students will have the opportunity to paint their own tiny gardens to take home and put in the bathroom or on the fridge or wherever.

The price of the class ($70) includes all materials, an hour of instruction, and an hour of guided painting.

Take a gander at @mrtnswft on instagram to peep some of his work.

Tickets: $70
