Level of Students and When to Enter Classes
You are welcome to join Berkeley classes any time, including mid-session. I do teach a four-time beginner class at the start of the new year. If you missed this class and you have no watercolor experience, I recommend that you start with one private lesson so I can help you to feel comfortable with the way watercolor moves and with the materials you will need in any class. Another way of feeling more comfortable before jumping into any of my classes is to learn from my DVD, The Dance of Watercolor for beginners and beyond which you can purchase through the store on this website in the hard copy form, and eventually as a download. Classes are large at the College of Marin. However, if you keep at it, you will improve quickly, as there are many students whose artwork will inspire you to keep practicing. In any of my classes I critique your artwork even if it is not related to my current demonstrations.
