About this event

INTERMEDIATE LEVEL WATERCOLOUR CLASS

"When you can't go outside, go inside" and find a little distraction from the everyday with this on-line art class featuring intermediate level guided watercolour techniques.

Join this class of 30-50 regular students and bring your curiosity to a meaningful activity that includes a mixture of stimulation, reflection, thought provocation, peaceful calm, relaxation and mindfulness.

Each class begins with a centering moment and breath practice to help lift away stress and invite freedom and focus into the session. Mid-way through the lesson the instructor will pause for a time of relection with a reading from the "May You Know Joy" meditation card set.

Fully detailed step-by–step instruction with in-session feedback, offered in a spirit of kind gentleness throughout the class. Follow-up support with the instructor via e-mail is also available.

Your guide will be Cathy Wild, who began painting as therapy in April 2016 after her own journey of self-discovery following brain surgery.

Cathy is excited to teach others to paint while continuing her own recovery. May you find yourself inspired by the giftedness that emerges through your creations.

"My promise is to be completely present with you at each and every class. Thank you for your curious interest and I look forward to serving you with an ‘Artist’s Heart’." -Cathy Wild

Since the beginning of the pandemic in April 2020, Cathy has taught her level 1 watercolour class to students on-line every Tuesday, a community that has grown to nearly 100 artists any given week.

Now many folks are ready to take their skills up a notch, so Cathy has opened up a second weekly class to develop and draw in the intermediate skill-set and style.
