Learn enough to play for a lifetime! With artist and instructor Kath Macaulay.
This is the perfect technique for travel journaling, hiking, biking, sauntering, sitting in a café or the airport.  Capture what you think you see in 25 minutes or less using a water soluble pen, a 4 x 6 inch pad of paper and a small paint set.  Ideal for the timid beginner to paint fearlessly in public, and the advanced artist who wants minimal equipment, total portability, speed, no interruptions and no clean-up.   New is adding a Micron pen.

Workshop includes several of the watercolor techniques of John Singer Sargent and uses photos of his watercolors extensively as teaching examples. From a former student at Canyon Ranch, “You just changed my life:  I can do this!”
