Join Issaquah-based environmental artist Claire Giordano for a colorful day exploring our world with watercolor! In this unique workshop at the stunning Seahurst Park in the heart of the Salish Sea ecosystem, we will spend a full day connecting to and painting classic Pacific Northwest land- and sea-scapes. 


Over the past 10 years of creating evocative images of local landscapes — for both artistic as well as scientific purposes — Claire devised a way to work with watercolor that is fun and accessible to artists of all levels. If you've seen her virtual programs, you should have a sense of her practical and powerful approach to watercolors.


In this special, first-time collaborative outing, Claire will share her favorite techniques for water, woods, and mountains as we explore the park together. She will walk us through a landscape painting (or two!) with a follow-along demo so we can put our new skills into practice. 


There will also be opportunities for students to share creations with the group, ask questions, and receive feedback on paintings.

This class is for painters of all levels, and participants will likely bring home a couple finished pieces to show off (or to treasure quietly, whatever your style is).
