Renowned Watercolor artist Tony Couch teaches watercolor workshops across the U.S. and abroad. His book, "WATERCOLOR: You Can Do It!", published by North Light in 1987 is now in its sixth printing, has become the publisher's all-time best-selling art book and is the textbook in several college art departments teaching watercolor painting.

Classes are made up of beginners, hobbyists, students, and professionals. The class is necessarily limited in size on a "first come"'ll work hard, but Tony Couch will show you how to have fun doing it. The eight Principles of Design will be cut down to size and each day you will see how they are applied to watercolor painting. You will learn something valuable and practice it on the spot, coming away with an increased understanding and several watercolor paintings of your own of which you will be proud.

Watercolor classes generally start at 9:00 each morning. After a brief talk on the day's objectives, Tony Couch will do a complete painting, telling you what he's doing as he does it, and why. The "mysteries" of design will be unraveled for you while you learn watercolor painting!

At noon we break for lunch, then YOU paint in the afternoon while what you have seen and learned is fresh in your mind. It's the fastest way to learn how to paint.

At about 3:30 Tony critiques all the work produced during the day, including his own. It's a time at which much is learned by all. By 5:00 we're finished. Of course, you may come and go as you wish at any time.
