|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00am on Thursday, repeating until December 14, 2018


Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center is excited to announce a partnership with The Contemporary Austin Art School! Drawing and watercolor classes will be taught in our McDermott Learning Center, a beautifully restored 19th-century carriage house nestled in the gardens.

All levels are welcome. Beginners will be introduced to the watercolor medium using traditional approaches and color theory. Intermediate-level students will advance technique through practice and critiques while also improving composition skills. Demos will include wet-into-wet washes, wet-on-dry washes, and ways to create glowing color like those you see in our gardens and natural areas!

This class is part of a 6-class series.
Thursdays, September 13 – October 25
November 1 – December 13 (no class November 22)
10 a.m. – 1 p.m. Registration is required and space is limited.
