Watercolor Journey Workshop

April 15, 16, 17, 2021

10am - 5pm EST

David has over 25 years of experience as a public school teacher. He is skilled at breaking down complex concepts and skills into easily learned chunks. The workshop will be presented on live YouTube and lasts from 10am to 5pm EST each day. Participants will paint along with David. The workshop will end with a Zoom meeting where participants will be able to share and discuss along with David. It will be packed with step-by-step instruction, demos and guided practice.


"David R. Smith's Watercolor Journey" will cover unique approaches to creating a Bouquet of flowers, a Mountain cabin, and a Stormy sky seascape. Wet-on-wet, spattering and spraying will keep the paintings fresh with exciting blends and textures. 

The cost of the 3-day virtual workshop is $180. Full payment is due with the application. Payment is not refundable. A minimum of 30 people is required.
