Illustrating the food from your kitchen (or your fantasy meals) can be fun for many reasons. It's therapeutic, creative, and experimental. And you can even create fun wall art for your home while you're at it!

In this beginner-friendly class, we'll explore shape, color, and texture using simple watercolor techniques. We'll start with a few basic exercises and quick, simple projects, then move on to create paintings using seasonal fruit, vegetables, and an occasional reference photo.  Along the way, I'll also share with you my process for gathering delicious-looking inspiration for artwork.
