Watercolour Workshops

In this workshop series you spend a delightful afternoon with artist CJ Shelton in her tranquil studio as she introduces simple and traditional step-by-step watercolour techniques that have you creating your own little masterpieces in no time. Depending on the subject matter you will work from direct observation or photo reference. These are both introductory and skill-building workshops. Having some drawing or painting experience is helpful but total newbies are more than welcome.


2017 HOLIDAY SEASON

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Solstice or Hanukah the holiday season offers wonderful opportunities to explore this magical time of year in watercolour. An added bonus is that you will have a finished painting you can proudly reproduce on your holiday greeting cards. Newbies and more experienced will both enjoy these fun and relaxing sessions.

PAYMENT POLICY
Booking an art experience is a commitment to yourself, the facilitator and other participants. The following policies are in place to ensure that all workshops and sessions run as scheduled and help guarantee that everyone involved has an enjoyable experience.

PAYMENT Payment is by cash or credit card (VISA, Mastercard and AMEX accepted)

FULL PAYMENT IS REQUIRED AT TIME OF BOOKING  To confirm your registration you must pay in full or provide a credit card number at the time of booking.

CANCELLATION POLICY  Last minute cancellations other than for extenuating circumstances spoils the fun for all involved. Because classes are kept small to give each participant lots of attention, it creates challenges for the facilitator and disappointment for other registrants when there are no-shows or a change of mind that cause a class to be cancelled or run only half-full.

THERE IS NO REFUND FOR CANCELLATIONS LESS THAN 72 HOURS PRIOR OR FOR NO-SHOWS ON THE DAY OF THE WORKSHOP

A raincheck may be offered depending on the circumstances of the cancellation. If a workshop has to be cancelled due to inclement weather or other extenuating circumstances participants will either be notified of the re-scheduled day/time or a full refund will be provided.
