What you'll do

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to paint with Watercolors? Well, now's your chance! Whether you're a seasoned Artist - or just beginning, you'll be amazed at your own creativity during this Experience!

I've had the privilege of living among the Red Rocks of Sedona area for more than 3 years. So I have a good grasp of where we can sit, peacefully in the magnificence of these giant monuments.

Once at the perfect spot in the Red Rocks, we will park and carry some (minimal) supplies on foot. I always take my guests' physical limitations into account, so don't worry about having to do any major hiking.

We'll break out the art materials that I've brought along. I will have 'camping' style light-weight chairs in bags. Please carry the one you choose.

I will give a brief overview of Composition & Color . . . to ease into this Experience. We will probably draw the scene in pencil, first.

Once you feel comfortable with your 'loose' drawing, then begins the painting magic!
An hour later, we will discuss our work while picnicking on the majestic Red Rocks of Sedona in a shady spot.

Get ready, because there will be some surprises - as your art piece progresses! I don't want to give it ALL away - but I believe you'll enjoy your Watercolor Experience 'en plein air' with me, as your guide.
Other things to note
Sunny? Wear a hat! Wintery? Bundle up! Shoes: if it's hot, w

Returning to university as an 'adult re-entry' student, I received my B.A. in Fine Art in 1982. As an entrepreneur, I relish playing with artsy concepts.

Tutoring in small groups is great. It's always such fun to see a person's astonishment, when they complete their first drawing or painting!

There's no time like NOW, so let's do it!

I had such a wonderful time painting with Sunshower. She was so kind and patient with me and taught me techniques to create a masterpiece that I can’t wait to frame and hang up in my home. I would highly recommend this experience!

This was a magical experience - Definitely one my favorite memories from the trip! It felt like a once in a lifetime moment to pain the beautiful red rocks. If you’re looking for a something out of the box to do, you’ve found it!! I have no experience painting but Sunshower made it fun and I learned so much. Can’t wait to buy my own water colors and explore this art form some more when home!

This was one of the highlights of my trip to Sedona, and a memory that I will treasure forever! I consider myself to have zero art skills, yet Sunshower inspired me to relax, have faith, and to enjoy the process of creating my first watercolor. A wonderful instructor,she is patient, engaging, and shared quality information about the subject matter we were painting, and about the surrounding area too! I thoroughly enjoyed this day and experience, and highly recommend it! Sunshower generously shared her time, magical inspiration, knowledge and technique skills. And she even brought snacks and beverages along to provide us with a post painting forum to share, discuss, and admire each others creations. Thank you Sunshower!
