Do you love watercolor paintings and want to try your hand at painting your own work of art? Artist Marietta Foster Smith, teacher of individual and small group painting lessons and workshops, will lead students through some basic steps of painting with watercolors.  Using a demonstration-and-copy teaching method, novice and more experienced painters alike will come away with an appreciation of watercolors and an introductory skill set they can use to continue practicing at home, or even proceed with additional learning.



This year, choose special over predictable and simple over complex as you host your summer gatherings.  Learn how to make refreshing drinks for your guests, with or without spirits, and offer sppetizers that are a feast for the eyes as well as the palette.

So sorry if you missed the fun of these ARTpops classes!
