The Wonders of Watercolor
- Carrie Allbritton

Mondays 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
and Tuesdays 6 pm - 9 pm     $25

     Carrie discounts that old saying that watercolor is the hardest media and unforgiving, believing instead that when you understand the paints and what they do on paper, you will find it fun, rewarding and very forgiving. Contact Carrie directly for a complete supply list at or 936-444-7303
     Carrie Allbritton has been a successful watercolor instructor for over twenty years.  She is a very hands on teacher, who loves nothing more than "turning on" a beginning student to the Wonders of Watercolor.  Her expertise is in bright, clear, intense colors mixed from just a few colors.  She teaches with a limited pallet of colors.  Carrie believes that each student deserves her time so she can carefully explain how watercolor works, how to mix a rainbow of colors and the proper way to apply the paint to the paper. ​
