Mission Statement
Teaching Mission Statement

Watercolor is often thought of as a lesser medium. Suitable for children and beginners… nothing more than a “coloring book” for adults, simply filling in a drawing. Perhaps only concerned with duplicating a photo. Not necessarily a true painting form.

By focusing on the tried and true methods of fine art composition, design, drawing, color theory and communication, my aim is to arm students with the ability to express their individual visions and not just how to copy or execute a series of watercolor “tricks”. While doing master copies is part of the way I teach, my desire is to give students the tools to make their own informed decisions to tell their unique story.

As a painter, demonstrator and educator, my goal is to break the stereotypes of watercolor and attempt to sway not only the general perception, but students overall understanding and knowledge of foundational art principles.
