Intermediate Watercolor Painting with 4 Class Sessions in July/August

Looking for Fish watercolor art by instructor Karen Brumgardt

Debby Felzien

The SBR Art Club is excited to bring back Karen Brumgardt for another series of classes in watercolor! These four classes are intended for the intermediate artist.

You may have seen Karen’s artwork displayed at Absolutely Art Gallery in Catalina, as well as the Southern Arizona Watercolor Guild gallery on Broadway. She has attained the Signature member status and has earned the Saguaro Fellow Level (the highest level of achievement available) with the Southern Arizona Watercolor Guild. She is also the president of the SaddleBrooke Fine Arts Guild. She will be sharing her years of experience with participants in

Developing the Painting in Watercolor, Part 2: A Painting Every Week! Interested in watercolor and advancing your skills? This course is designed for those who took beginning watercolor with Karen earlier this year. However, even if you did not take Karen’s class but have watercolor experience, this class is also for you. She will teach you to paint a different subject every week. For instance, the first week might be a flower, the next week might be a landscape, then a water scene with rocks, and so on. The emphasis will be on design, composition, color usage, and new techniques, while practicing basic painting skills to develop the painting. Students will be encouraged to learn how to finish a painting. They will be encouraged to paint on their own, bring in their work to be discussed in a positive way, and become more confident in their watercolor painting journey.

Dates for the 4 classes: Thursdays, July 20, July 27, Aug. 3, and Aug. 10

Time: 1 to 4 p.m. in the SBR Art Room

Class fee: $180; fee includes instruction, didactic materials, photos, and demonstration.
