“It was such a FUN workshop!!!! This was such a great change of pace for me."  Sue Horwath

“This was fun! I tried not to think, but just did it.” – Pat Averill

"Thanks, Karen. It was actually just some nice creative play for a little while on Saturday. I’m usually so focused on creating something specific with my art that I never let myself have just purely escape time. So it was a great experience. 
We could almost charge for this! Thanks again! " —Rhonda Dicksion

Patricia has taught watercolor, drawing and colored pencil classes as adjunct faculty for several colleges and at Sitka Center for Art and Ecology on the Oregon Coast.

In this 2 day workshop Patricia will guide you through a series of exercises that teaches you to use watercolor for colored pencil in mixed media art.

The secret to painting backgrounds is controlling water and pigment.

Learn how to mix wet-into-wet watercolor to create beautiful colors once you know how to control the water!

This workshop is ‘in-person’ only.
