Thursday, June 30, 5:00pm - 6:30pm PST

Do you love beach combing and collecting shells? Let's celebrate these natural treasures by painting them in watercolor! This class will be a careful, slow observation of small shells, either your own or you may choose some from the source image Sophie will provide. Bring the beach vibes into your studio just in time for the heat of summer!

Join zoom 15 minutes early (4:45pm) for an informal meet and greet with the instructor and other class participants! Session instructions will begin promptly at 5:05pm PST so that everyone has plenty of time to join!


  • Small brush - size 2, 4, or 6 round

  • Watercolor paper

  • Paper towel

  • Paints - you'll need some neutral colors like graphite/gray, titanium white, yellow/brown ochre, umber/sepia, and indigo.

  • Shells! or not, Sophie will provide a source image. 

I have followed a meandering path to find my way to a career in illustration and I'm overjoyed to share my love of nature through painting. Watercolor is my muse and I love its unpredictable, unforgiving qualities; it is my daily joy to harness the wildness of the medium and reveal its delicacy and strength.
