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

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

Join us for a fun and inspiring evening where you can relax and enjoy the process of painting! All supplies included.

Workshop cost is $35 per person, or $30 if you are a member of The Local.

If you have any questions about this workshop or need assistance in signing up, please contct me at

You can see more of my work over on my Instagram.

Pre-registration is required so I know how many palettes and brushes we’ll need! All sales are final.


Hey Emma - just wanted to say REALLY enjoyed the class last night. I loved learning the techniques, loved the class style. I feel like I actually came away with the ability to keep learning and growing with watercolor. Anyway - thanks a ton! - Katie, Jan 2019

Thank you so much for the class yesterday! It was a blast and I learned a lot. I have always been ambivalent about [watercolor] but you showed me new ways to use it and think about it. - Deborah, Feb 2019
