WATERCOLOR CLASSInstructor Becky Peebles

Watercolors by Helen Smathers

The weekly watercolor classes with Becky Peebles are structured for beginners through advanced students. Each class is $35 per session.

Starting with loose washes and progressing to details, you will learn Becky's technique which could be described as realism with a dash of Impressionism (or soul!). Beginners through Advanced are welcome to attend.

Every other session begins with Becky demonstrating a particular technique, leading the class step by step. After this warm-up, the class will move on to individual work. Each demo is independent of the one before and after... you are never behind, even if you miss a class. The sessions in which there is no demo are to allow students to develop individual style with hands-on guidance.

There is no advance registration... these are ongoing classes. Limited seating is available. Please call Becky at 706-969-2052 to reserve your space. The class will be conducted following CDC and OSHA Guidelines for Phase 2 Opening as defined by the State of Georgia.

Dates: every Thursday
Time: 1:00 till 4:00pm
Place: Community Hall
Cost: $35 per session
Skill level: Beginners through Advanced are welcome to attend
RegistrationDeadline: On-going
