Join us for an evening of Watercolor with artist & author Sarah Simon of TheMintGardener! Sarah will be providing two hours of watercolor painting instruction, including an introduction, watercolor fundamentals, and TWO projects to complete together that complement lessons from her new book. You will learn to color swatch and mix her favorite "color recipes" from the limited edition Winsor & Newton painting set provided exclusively for all attendees, as well as hearing more thoughts on composing an original piece of art and developing your own creative voice. No drawing experience is required! You will learn to shape, paint, mix and blend with all the materials that you need provided. This class is for beginners or experienced artists, anyone who is interested in learning the techniques and style of the Watercolor Art!

A thirty-minute Book Signing Reception 'meet and greet' will follow. If you already have Sarah's books, feel free to bring it so she can sign, but if not no need to worry: there will be an opportunity to purchase a copy of her books, in case you don't already have one, or would like an extra for a friend. 

Meet Your Teacher: 

Finding inspiration in the ever-blooming variety of textures and colors in her urban garden, Sarah creates and teaches lush Watercolors inspired by the diverse variety of herbs, flowers, and trees grown in her green space. With a continually blooming following of botanical and art lovers alike, Sarah began sharing her teaching talents in Seattle, Washington where she regularly instructs Watercolor Classes to students of all skill levels. Her teaching has received international attention with her online painting courses in the Watercolor Summit and now with her two books: "Modern Watercolor Botanicals" and "The Plant Lady Coloring Book," both released by Blue Star Press/Penguin Random House in November 2019. We are very excited to have Sarah here in April to share her watercolor knowledge for the 2020 "Modern Watercolor Botanicals" book tour! 

Check Sarah out on her beautifully curated Instagram that has us beyond excited for this unique maker break!
