Study With Kathy Armstrong

Virtual 6-Week Watercolor Class on TUESDAYS

The next VIRTUAL class is March 1 through April 12, from 3 to 5:30 pm, EST (skipping March 22)

Kathy began teaching virtually when the pandemic hit and now, with some students from out of state, decided to continue a class that way. Using the Zoom platform she and the participants interact just as though they were in-person, with demos (easier to see), lessons from her computer, critiques and individual feedback on each participant’s painting. Students can work at their own pace and choose to participate in particular practices or not, as they choose. The fee is $150 plus materials. A materials list will be sent to all new participants. CONTACT KATHY DIRECTLY IF INTERESTED.

In-Person 6-Week Watercolor Class on WEDNESDAYS

The next IN-PERSON class is April 6 through May 18 (skipping the April 20 class), from 9 – 11 am

Kathy will be teaching the next in-person watercolor class on Wednesday mornings at the Spiegel Community Center, 35 Lincoln Avenue, Pittsford. Registration is directly through the Center and you don’t have to be a resident to sign up. Basic to intermediate watercolor techniques will be covered and demonstrated, as well as color-mixing, and how to achieve various results. During the course, students will work on a painting of their choice with individual guidance as needed. All levels of experience are welcome. The fee is $120 (a minimal fee added for non-residents) plus materials. A materials list will be sent a week or so before the start of each session. REGISTRATION IS THROUGH THE PITTSFORD REC DEPARTMENT.  For more information on upcoming classes email Kathy here.
