This class is a great introduction to mixed media, watercolor and ink. We will explore cacti as our subject but with a playful, whimsical, and creative approach. In the first 20 min of the workshop, we will explore basic watercolor and ink techniques to get us warmed up. The remaining portion of the class will be focused on creating fun potted cacti and succulents.
