The holidays are always a special time of joy, wonder, and reflection. But after a significant loss, it’s hard to think of yourself enjoying the special traditions and gatherings with this grief in your heart. You may find yourself looking towards the holidays with dread, stress, guilt, or fear.

So why not channel all that energy into something creative? In these two workshops, the goal is not to get your mind off your grief, but to give you a constructive way to work through it. No previous art experience needed. This will be a safe space for you to process. Feel free to share and express emotions as much or little as you need.

Instructor: Andy Sewell (from Moscow ID).
Andy Sewell is an acclaimed watercolorist who will be visiting Boise to give us an amazing 8-hour workshop over two days. You want to already have some experience in watercolor in order to take this class.

From Andy: “I am structuring the course to teach some beginner and advanced techniques. I will focus on getting you started and advancing in watercolor. I will teach you what I have learned in my 28 years of painting and help you to paint with the techniques and style like I do. You will learn the basics as well as  tips, tricks, techniques, and methods I use to paint. I will encourage you to be creative. We will cover mostly technique, and various ways of how to put paint on paper, some discussion of color, value, light, design, and what makes a good painting. I work mostly from photographs and I will show you how that is done. Friday we will go over the basics and do a few exercises, then on Saturday, we will all paint a watercolor together from a photo(s) I have taken and will supply you with.
WHAT TO BRING/SUPPLIES: I will get back to those who register with a supply list, and what to bring/buy. Plan $40 – $60 for  your supplies (mostly brushes, paper and paint) if you are missing a few paint colors or brushes, I can provide some supplies. Also plan to bring a sack lunch.” You MUST register at the link above in order to take Andy’s class.
