Painting for those who think they can’t.

Announcements – Our own Jonathan Lewis has written a poem “Watercolor Party” published in the Southwester (scroll down almost to the end). Here’s a video of our discussion before his arrival at class and his reading(3 minutes)
Another GREAT thing is Louise Holland’s photo, “Georgetown” was voted best in the Capitol Hill Art League (CHAL) new members show. Her other photos from the show are at the bottom of our Sept.3rd show

We are still experiencing technical difficulties. They upgraded the software, which is always problematical.

The next OnLine WatercolorDC class, will be September 17th 5:45 PM.
We’ll look at the work people have done over the week. Do some painting and share what we have done.

The Summer PaintZoom Show photos are up. Have a look!

    I look forward to attending the April 2nd Watercolor Zoom Class.
    Thank you!!!



    My watercolor instructor is now starting a zoom watercolor class. I helping her some with the technology since I’m doing an online college class due to the virus. One question how you do get to present the picture of painting the watercolor from above? What type of camera do you have and how do you mount it?

      Tell her to get in touch.
