ART CLASSES

- with Kaitlin Walsh in Waunakee, WI -

We are offering art and painting classes exclusively at Lyon Road Art’s new studio in Waunakee, Wisconsin (suburb of Madison)! I have taught many classes over the years, from fun Paint ‘N Sip ones, to serious medical illustration and watercolor classes, to volunteering art at nursing homes. However, this is the first time I’m doing it through my own studio and I couldn’t be more excited to share my expertise with the adults and children in the community! I look forward to working with you and your children.

CLASS OFFERINGS

  • All classes will be offered at 101 E. Main St., Waunakee, WI
  • Two sessions will be offered for each season

WEDNESDAYS | 6:30-7:30pm

I’ve heard it said that watercolor is the most challenging medium. You know, because you can’t erase or paint over it and it’s hard to control with all that flowing. Wrong! This medium is beautiful, ethereal, exciting and, yes, it can be controlled. With just a few tricks of the trade I can teach you to be the master of it as well, even if you haven’t held a brush since kindergarten. Anyone interested in learning a new artistic hobby is welcome. All supplies will be provided.

MONDAYS | 4pm

Does your kid love painting? Love animals? Maybe both? If so, sign them up! Each week we will go through step-by-step instructions to render a different animal in watercolor. The tentative plan is to paint jellyfish, a sea turtle, a bee and an owl, but I do love taking suggestions from the class, so we may deviate from that syllabus. Either way, the kids will learn an appreciation of the medium and the joy of hanging out with other creative kids.

By the end you'll have gathered some great techniques and will have gotten to hang out with some cool and creative people. How can you pass? Open to beginners and beyond!
