Right now, I'm running a crowd-funding campaign to recover lost savings, which will ultimately lead to having a studio space again (my impending daughter's nursery took over the space). One of the rewards I'm offering for contributions is a six week online watercolor class. This has been requested of me quite often, so I'm very excited to be able to offer it! 

There are lots of other exciting rewards available too, including a Process & Technique DVD if the class is too far out of your budget! 

Head over here for more information.

Hope to see some of you sign up! :D
