Experience the joy of watercolor painting with Yao Cheng, a renowned artist and the creator behind her recognizable style of modern watercolors.

Our workshops are for all beginners!  Over the course of an afternoon, Yao will share her tips and techniques for modern watercolor through washes, painted shapes, leaves, wreaths and simple florals.  Our workshops allow you to explore this medium in a new way, whether you are looking for a new hobby or want to improve your painting skills.  At it's core, Yao loves watercolor for its meditative, intuitive experience.  Yao focuses on working with you one-on-one during class.  This is also the perfect opportunity to ask her any questions you have while painting.  By the end, you will gain a new confidence in painting and see how much fun watercolor can be!  Watch Yao's painting style and creations come to life.

All of our workshops include practice sheets, mounted boards for a finished painting, reference materials, fresh flowers, and the option of a take-home painting kit.  The kit includes high-quality supplies that Yao recommends to every beginner for an enjoyable experience of what this medium can achieve, and even comes with a custom tote!

Light refreshments will be provided.  A week prior to the workshop, we will send you a reminder for the event and travel details.

**Classes are non-refundable and require a minimum of 6 students for attendance! In the event of a cancellation, you will receive a full-refund 1 week prior to the workshop date.
