TUESDAYS,  9:30 am – 12:00 noon  
October 24-December 5

This is a 6 week class. 

In Andrew Kusmin’s watercolor class, you will explore basic watercolor techniques with emphasis on design, composition, light and how to control watercolor. Andrew will use demonstrations and critiques to move you toward painting your own statements with confidence and unique signature.

If you have painted, bring a sample or two of your work . If not, bring photos that illustrate how you hope to paint. We will get to know one another more quickly so Andrew can gear lessons to this particular group level and needs.

Refund policy:

Refunds will not be given within one week of the start of a class. Classes are not pro-rated, and there are no makeups for missed classes. A $25 processing fee is withheld from all refunds.

The Art Center reserves the right to cancel any class or workshop due to insufficient enrollment, in which case tuition will be fully refunded.

If Falmouth Public Schools are closed due to weather conditions, we will be closed and the missed classes will be rescheduled.
