Update: Due to positive response, we’ve added another retreat day at the Coverdales’! Two separate Saturday retreats are coming up: May 6 and July 15, 2017. Email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’d like to join us!
When I was in central Iowa recently, I was seeing my daughter’s family but also teaching at the farm home of Judy and Mike Coverdale. Judy and I spent two days painting and we came up with the idea to offer watercolor retreats at their home near Nevada, Iowa.
The Coverdales have a beautiful setting to paint, out in the country with a creek, trees and gardens. We can focus a bit on drawing and composition and move into painting. Bring along your ideas and photos and we will help you paint them.
Right now we are planning two separate Saturday retreats (updated): May 6 and July 15, 9 a.m. – 2 p.m on each day. The cost is $35.00 per student per day including a simple soup lunch. I will bring one sheet of 140 lb. watercolor paper for each person and a few supplies for new painters. Others can bring their own watercolor supplies. Mike suggests I inform folks that there are a couple of cats in the house, in case that is a concern.
Join us for a playful day of watercolor! There is room for a maximum of 10 people on each date. Send me an email (email@example.com) if you’d like to join in.
