Creativity Everyday: Watercolor Painting with Lindsay Hollinger
Saturday August 26, 2017: 4-7pm at a private residence in Mar Vista, CA
Join Joshua Tree artist Lindsay Hollinger for an afternoon of watercolor painting in Los Angeles. Pulling inspiration from the desert, you will learn techniques for watercolor painting and integrating creativity into your life, with a focus on heart-led explorations in pigment. We'll be painting in a garden setting in a beautiful private home in Los Angeles. It will be a relaxing and fun environment to learn, and make new friends along the way. This workshop is for everyone, and first-timers are welcome: no experience is necessary. Supplies, snacks, and happy hour included!
In the first half of the workshop, you will learn watercolor basics such as paint mixing and brush techniques and we'll talk about ways to incorporate creativity into your daily routine. In the second half, you will create a painting inspired by the desert using inspiration provided by Lindsay and using your newly acquired skills. It will be a fun, zero-pressure environment with lots of personalized instruction. If you have always wanted to try painting but been scared, too busy, embarrassed, or simply didn't know where to start-- this is the class for you!
The workshop will be outdoors in a backyard setting at a private residence in Mar Vista, CA. Once you're registered, the address of the private residence will be sent to you.
As a workshop participant, you will receive:
- all supplies needed (high quality watercolor paint set, watercolor paper pad, quality brushes) that are yours to keep
- personalized instruction with artist Lindsay Hollinger in a small class setting
- light snacks and beverages
Cancellation policy: tuition is non-refundable. If you can find a replacement student to take your spot, we can work it out on a case by case basis. If you have to cancel and your spot isn't filled, I will mail you the painting materials.

"There are a lot of things to love about Lindsay's class but I was amazed at the sense of accomplishment I had after one-day of learning with her. The surroundings and the vibe of her class all allow safe space to push your creative boundaries. But at the end of the day, I had four pieces of new work that each showed the progress I made, in an afternoon." -Dolph
