Watercolor Galaxy Painting Workshop
Jan 17 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Unwind and get creative with some beginner-friendly painting—with a finished product you’ll actually be proud of!

Join watercolor artist Amanda Schmitt as she shows you how to create your own unique, swirling galaxy paintings. Use the professional-quality tools she uses in her own work and get step-by-step guidance on some of the fundamentals of watercolor painting. You’ll get everything you need to make a variety of paintings to keep as a set for yourself or to give as gifts!

Level of instruction:
This workshop is suitable for both complete beginners as well as those with some painting experience. We start with a brief introduction to basic watercolor techniques and principles to get everyone on the same page. Even if you don’t think you’re artistic, the galaxy paintings are specifically designed with beginners in mind. The free-flowing nebulas of color give you space for play and exploration, allowing you to give up a little control and let the unpredictable nature of watercolors work its magic.

Location:
Espresso Yourself Coffee and Cafe is a charming spot in South Hampton STL. Settle down to paint, surrounded by a fun environment in a vibrant space is sure to inspire. This is also a great place to grab a bite or beverage as well!

What to bring:
All you need to bring is yourself! Everything is provided for you during the workshop. You can bring a smock or apron if you like, but watercolor isn’t actually very messy. (One of its biggest perks!)

Things to know:
This workshop needs at least 6 participants to run. If there aren’t enough people, and you already bought a ticket, you can get a refund or have your ticket transferred to the same workshop on a different date. If there are not enough participants to run the workshop, you will get an email 24 hours before the scheduled workshop.
