About the Artist


Hi! I’m Sarah, former art teacher, lifelong creative, and professional artist. Over the years, I’ve had many requests for watercolor classes, but life conspired and I never got it done. I tried to think about everything I wished I knew starting out, and I’ve added all that into the plan. These classes will take you from absolute beginner to confident watercolorist, and we’ll do it all in person, in very small groups (max of 6/class), from the cosy comfort of my firelit home in Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada.

Join Sarah for an immersive experience in the art of portraiture! In this class, we will delve into the elements of portraiture and explore the unique challenges and opportunities that watercolour brings to capturing faces. Under Sarah’s experienced guidance, you’ll learn her tricks for painting smooth, edge-free skin, fine details in hair, skin, and eyes, and how to mix colours for various skin tones.

Sarah will not only demonstrate these skills step-by-step but also paint alongside you, offering personalized coaching to enhance your artistic expression. This workshop extends over a weekend, taking place on Saturday and Sunday afternoon, giving you ample time for detailed instruction and practice. With a total of 8 hours of instruction, you’ll have the opportunity to perfect your techniques and embrace the subtleties of watercolour.

You are encouraged to bring your own quality brushes and paints for this project, along with a 10×10″ sheet of professional grade watercolour paper (a watercolour block is recommended to avoid paper buckling). A complete set of student grade materials is available for purchase, but professional materials are preferred to ensure your best success.

Embark on this artistic journey with Sarah and master the art of watercolour portraiture. Register now to secure your spot in this exclusive class and elevate your painting skills to the next level!
