NOTE: Registration will close for this program at 3 p.m. ET on Friday, March 11, 2022.

Discover how to quickly capture a variety of subjects with loose lines and painterly colors using instructor Cindy Briggs’ quick sketch watercolors method. This “go with the flow” technique is perfect for studies, travel journals, and finished fine art.

Learn how to see like an artist, compose a scene, and draw more organically as you build your confidence. Then, inject captivating, mingling watercolors into your sketch in just minutes. Trust your instincts, loosen up, and have fun as you capture the essence of any subject with free-flowing luminescent watercolors. For experienced beginner and intermediate students.

This class will be recorded. Please see our FAQ for recording terms and conditions.
