Succulents and cactus are very trendy– especially for artists! Come explore this fun and whimsical style of painting with local artist Tonja Wilcox.

You’ll take home a beautiful rainbow prickly pear painting, ready to frame, hang and show off to your friends!

No drawing skills needed. Good for beginners and intermediate level painters.


Why watercolors?
Watercolor paint generally has a translucent quality, which is great for ethereal or emotive effects. Blending colors is fun, and you can also layer imagery so that what is underneath shows through. Watercolors are generally more affordable than some other paint mediums and are light weight for easy transporting. This workshop will arm you with the tips & tricks to maximize your watercolor experience.
