Do you love the ocean but are a little intimidated to try to paint it? Or do you need a little creative inspiration to take your paintings to the next level? This class will be perfect! Each week we'll start with a warm-up, get inspired by master artists with a variety of painting styles, and then jump into painting a different beachscape. We'll practice techniques for painting sand, water, waves, and clouds. You can bring your own photo inspiration or use the example Alisha paints from during her demo.

Alisha uses her nearly 20 years experience painting to teach techniques and skills, while encouraging everyone to develop their own creative voice. All experience levels welcome.

Please bring any watercolor supplies you already have. Alisha doesn't require that you have the same brand or exact paint colors but does recommend high quality paints and paper. Here are some suggestions:


-140 lb watercolor paper. Arches is my favorite, and at least an 8x10 (or larger) block is really convenient for class. Also bring a small pad of inexpensive paper (something like the 6 x 9 in. Strathmore vision watercolor pad). 

-Watercolor brushes - at least a large (size 10) and a small round brush (size 2). A liner and scrub brush are also very helpful. 

-Watercolor paints - You can buy a set or individual tubes. You'll definitely want the primary colors (like Permanent or Pyrrol red, Hansa yellow, Ultramarine or Cobalt blue), and it's nice to have secondary ones as well (Pyrrol or Permanent orange, Permanent and sap green, Imperial purple). Other colors I like are Shadow Violet, Yellow Ochre, Burnt Sienna and Burnt Umber. You do not need white or black.  

-Watercolor palette with a lid and wells for mixing - Alisha will happily help you set up your watercolor palette (and show you what else you need) on the first day.

-Water cup

-Towel or paper towels


-Kneaded eraser
