Class/Workshop Title: The Blooming Desert

Medium: Watercolor

Instructor: Yvonne Joyner

Date/Time: January 11, 2020  Sat 9:00a.m – 3:00 p.m.


The first part of watercolor is WATER! It drips, it flows, it splashes and it has an element of surprise & excitement! Don’t be afraid of it. Allow this liquid medium to work its magic. Learn how to let the watercolor paint itself!

25+ years in Arizona have not dulled Yvonne’s excitement and love of the desert. Class will work from photos, building a composition, capturing the unique light of the Arizona desert in brilliant, transparent watercolor. Bring your own photos or use instructors.
