About Wine & Watercolor

Wine & Watercolor are paint and sip events created to share Marcia’s love of watercolors in a fun, relaxed, social environment. The goal of each session is for players to experience the joy of watercolors, gain skills and knowledge, and leave with a finished painting.

Wine & Watercolor are not paint-by-number sessions. Marcia offers individual guidance and step-by-step demonstrations while describing watercolor techniques and painting essentials.

“I have loved every one of my wine & watercolor classes. It is relaxing and I feel like we are encouraged to express ourselves and our individuality through our paintings. I always leave with my own masterpiece and a sense of accomplishment.”  Trudy Hoffman

“Today, another wonderful watercolor class! I took the first class as a curiosity and didn’t expect to enjoy so much and today was my fifth!! Marcia is an excellent teacher that guides us step-by-step and also transmits her love of painting through her work. Thank you and count me in for more classes.”  Marisabel Nicoletti

“The evening was really fun. The [French & Music] house is a great environment. You really helped me get the right paint consistency and my painting had very vibrant color after one wash. Also the way that you talked about pulling paint made me work a little differently . . . It is truly the first time that I have held highlights in a flower. Love what you are doing.”  Lorraine Elmore

“We had the best time ever. Can’t wait until the next one to do it again!!!”  Tina Beer

“I attended the wine and watercolors class in November. Unlike other sip and paint classes I have attended, the instructor was very knowledgeable and really went out of her way to help each person leave with a better understanding of the medium. I’d highly recommend this class to people looking to learn about watercolor. Novices and artists alike will feel comfortable.”  Darcy Goeken

“I thoroughly enjoyed the first class. Marcia is a gifted artist and instructor.” Carina Miguez

BYOB

Painting Selection

Instruction
