Picture ID: A watercolor painting of a building surrounded by trees, bushes, and flowers that are orange, blue, and pink. The foliage takes up the foreground of the painting, while the building is hidden behind them. END ID.

This class will be using a fast, loose approach to capture the essence of the scene with a concentration on how to see and see deeply. Class is well-suited for the beginner as well as the professional. 

The instructor will introduce materials and demonstrate basic watercolor wash techniques at the beginning of class to get everyone started. We will have short critiques at the end of each session to learn and gain insight from each other. 

This class may be taken with minimal watercolor supplies, purchased in a small kit, to get started. The only other needed materials are a good pair of walking shoes and a sun hat, as we will be working locally plein-air.

Cancellation & Class Policies

Student Withdrawal
Requests for cancellation by the student at least seven (7) days prior to the first day of class will be honored (minus a $20 processing fee).  NO REFUNDS will be given for a student cancellation made less than seven (7) days in advance of the first day of the class.

Class Cancellations (Weather)
When Public Schools of Petoskey are closed due to inclement weather, CTAC-Petoskey classes are cancelled. We will do our best to provide a make-up opportunity for the missed class. Refunds will not be given if the student is unable to attend the rescheduled session of class. Workshops and one-time classes will be handled on a per-class basis. School of Ballet students are asked to make up the missed class in an alternate session approved by their instructor.

Student Absence
We are unable to offer refunds or make-up sessions for classes missed due to student absence.

COVID-19 Symptoms or Exposure
If you suspect that you have been exposed to or display symptoms of COVID-19, please do not come to CTAC for your in-person class. We will offer a prorated credit (never expires) or refund for two weeks of your missed class for all cancellations due to suspected COVID-19 infection and/or exposure. If you choose to drop the remainder of your class, you will receive a prorated refund of the tuition of the remaining sessions.

COVID-19 Class Cancellations
In the event of a COVID-19 outbreak or state mandate, CTAC will announce the closure on its website and phone system (231-347-4337). Prorated refunds will be issued for the remaining sessions.

Minimum Enrollment
Crooked Tree Arts Center reserves the right to cancel any class that does not meet its minimum student enrollment prior to the first class session. If a class is cancelled by CTAC for lack of enrollment, CTAC will offer a full refund to the student in the manner in which tuition was paid. (Cash payments will be refunded by check.)
