PAST WORKSHOP: Watercolor Painting with Lindsay Hollinger 

Sunday April 8, 2018: 1-4pm at a Thick As Thieves in Palm Springs, CA

Join Joshua Tree artist Lindsay Hollinger for an afternoon of watercolor painting at the beautiful boutique and event space Thick As Thieves in downtown Palm Springs. 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 the event space nestled inside Thick As Thieves. 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 and refreshments 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! 

As a workshop participant, you will receive:

  • high-quality Winsor & Newton watercolor set
  • watercolor paper pad
  • watercolor brush set
  • reusable palette
  • a reusable tote to carry your supplies
  • surprise goodies!

    "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
