Tuesday, January 22 | 6 - 8pm | The Local in Sturgis, SD

Learn the basics of watercolor painting from local artist and designer, Emma J Rivers.

We will focus on getting comfortable with watercolor painting through learning basic techniques and painting exercises. Together we’ll create a beautiful sample sheet of the different techniques, and a couple of notecards that you can mail to your friends and family. This hands-on class is designed for those who have no or little experience in watercolor.

Join us for a fun and inspirational evening where you can relax and enjoy the process of painting!

 Registration is $30 per person, or $25 if you are a member of The Local.

Emma J Rivers is an artist and designer living in Rapid City, SD, with a love of moss on rocks, the beauty of the Black Hills, and a well-curated Pinterest board.

Originally from Scotland, Emma graduated from Heriot-Watt University with a BA (Hons) in Design for Textiles (Fashion, Interior, Art). While she still dabbles with textiles her current passions are watercolor painting and jewelry making.

Through her painting, she loves to explore the contrast between the organic unpredictability of watercolor with the structure of geometric shapes that result in a unique harmony.
