Online Workshop 12/10: Evergreen Watercolor Ornaments

Join Sophie for an evening of painting botanical ornaments/gift tags! Suitable for beginners and intermediate level painters, this class will cover watercolor basics, a discussion of materials, and finish with painting a variety of botanicals to turn into ornaments or gift tags. 

You will complete the assembly of your ornaments after the class when your painting has had time to dry.  Supplies will include a new brush, a pad of watercolor paper, and a custom palette of paints culled from Sophie's extensive selection of high-end pigments.

About the instructor: 
Sophie Tivona grew up wandering in gardens around the Bay Area and dreaming of flowers, rocks, soil, and water. She was raised by her single mother, who has been a professional gardener her whole life. Sophie always loved to create paper products and would find quiet spaces in the yard to make little treasures. She has followed a meandering path to find her way to a career in illustration, and she's delighted to share her love of nature through painting. Watercolor is her muse and her love its unpredictable, unforgiving qualities; it is her daily joy to harness the medium's wildness and reveal its delicacy and strength.
