Embark on a captivating journey into the world of watercolor with our “Intro to Painting Landscapes” workshop. Perfect for beginners eager to explore the basics, this workshop covers exciting techniques and textures unique to the medium. Participants will delve into watercolor vocabulary, learning essential color-mixing skills along the way. By the end of the workshop, each guest will have created three mini landscape paintings, showcasing newfound skills and creativity. While designed with beginners in mind, all skill levels are welcome to join this artistic adventure. Quality tools and supplies will be provided for use during the workshop, but feel free to bring your favorite watercolor materials to personalize your experience. Unlock the wonders of watercolor painting while sipping on world-class wine. I cannot wait to see you there!

We are so fortunate to be surrounded by lush oak trees, scenic foliage, rolling vineyards, and wildflowers. This landscape offers an especially inspiring setting for all artists, especially landscape painters and nature journalers. My classes are not just art classes, nor are they your average paint-and-sip event. We are deepening our connection to the land, to this special place rich in biodiversity.  I aim to offer Andis Wines guests the opportunity to connect with nature as well as their creativity – all while enjoying the world-class wines your winery has to offer.

Each class will offer an intimate and exclusive experience, designed to provide participants with the highest level of artistic enrichment.
