About This Class

In this beginner's class, artist Kristy Lankford will teach you how to paint with watercolor and acrylic paint in your sketchbook. It is familiar to hear of someone drawing in their sketchbook, but what about painting? Painting is a great way to express yourself creatively, to help brainstorm new ideas, and to create something new and beautiful, but it doesn't always have to be on canvas or high quality paper. In this class, you will learn some tips and tricks for painting in your sketchbook. Students will learn how to use materials in a new way to create a variety of paintings in their sketchbooks. No experience is necessary - all levels are encouraged to join. 


Kristy Lankford is an artist and art teacher who has be making and teaching art for over 10 years. She always has at least one sketchbook with her at all times and she is sure to make something in her sketchbook every single day.
