Hey Everyone!

Come join me this Saturday for abstract and mosaic watercolor!

The event is for anyone that likes art, painting, chatting and meeting new people over a relaxed activity. Locals and visitors are welcome. All ages and levels are welcome! I will be doing a demo, coming around and assisting you with your individual paintings. In the workshop people don't paint the same painting and my teaching will cater to your painting of choice!
There aren’t enough watercolor painting events in San Francisco so it would be nice to make this something ongoing. Plus, it’s a great way to start a Saturday and get tips on what to see in SF from locals! I’ll be there at 11 am and I hope to see you there 😊👋🏻

Regular ticket price is $10.
To rent supplies for those of you who are traveling or don’t have enough time to get supplies its $5 extra.

The supplies to bring: watercolor paper, watercolor paints, watercolor brushes, paper towels (important), clothes that you don't mind getting dirty and sunglasses if it’s a sunny day. If you’re wondering what kind of watercolor supplies to get, I wrote a more detailed description below.

Professional artist grade supplies I use and recommend:

Strathmore Protected content Acrylic Pads or Arches watercolor pads (Rough or Cold Pressed) for watercolor paper, Princeton Neptune Series Protected content Squirrel Brushes and Sennelier or Winsor & Newton professional grade paint tubes. For additional golden watercolors, I recommend Finetec Artist Mica watercolors.

Otherwise if you're a beginner, opt for any brand watercolor paper, just make sure it’s not mixed media paper because those are thinner and don’t take in as much water. You need something that is minimum Protected content . Any watercolor tubes or pans will do. The more expensive paints have less binding material and more pigment so keep that in mind. It’s much more rewarding to paint with rich, pigmented paints. The difference is drastic. As for brushes, the Princeton Neptune series aren’t expensive so if you can, buy those. Otherwise, any brand that’s for watercolor will do. I recommend having a mop brush, a square brush and a round brush to start.

***Please RSVP, and update your attendance if you're not going.
