Irving-based Michaels offers free online classes across a wide range of ages (3+), skill levels and interests. Visit their website for a full list of classes - they're all free and online. You can either purchase the supplies in advance and create the project during the class or simply watch how it's done to see if you're interested.

CLASS DESCRIPTION: In this Winsor & Newton Watercolour painting workshop, we will sketch out this prickly pear cacti together, and then use a mix of Cotman watercolours to bring it to life with dimension and detail! This class is great for intermediate painters, as well as those who are just getting started with using watercolors, all skill levels are welcome! There will be a sketch available for you to use as a reference to sketch beforehand, or you can sketch along with me in real time!
