About the Event

Your travels are special and deserve to be documented with more than a photo! Watercolors are ideal for capturing the amazing places you visit. They are lightweight, dry fast and can be used for sketches or full paintings.  Joan Jach will discuss what supplies to bring when you travel and give a beginning watercolor painting lesson in this class.  We will be working from a photo, so please bring a photo of a favorite travel memory or a place you would love to visit. Students will take home the paints, paper and brushes we will use in class in addition to their personalized painting! 

We will meet in the Rugged Outdoors store (next to Champaign Outdoors) for this class. Joan Jach is a trained geologist and educator. She teaches art, gardening, herbal medicine and homesteading classes in the Champaign-Urbana area and runs Old Town Flowers, a small, urban flower farm. Joan loves to travel and she doesn't mind getting lost. Her travels has taken her all over the US and a few places overseas. One of her favorite travel memories is when she rode a camel around the Giza Pyramid complex in Egypt!
