About This Class

Let’s draw delicious pastry and cookies in watercolors!

Watercolors are fun! You can literally draw anything with them, but why not start with something delicious? 

In this class we will be drawing cookies and pastry and learning how to use glazing technique along the way. 

  • I will show you my step by step process of creating beautiful pieces (and hey, there are just 3 major steps!)
  • We will do some easy exercises to get a taste of what glazing is and why it is an awesome technique
  • We then will try something a bit more interesting, painting cookies and pastry 
  • Finally we will deal with dark colors by drawing a few Oreo cookies

So jump in the class and lets draw something yummy!
