Intermediate/Advanced Watercolor with Kay Stauffer

Wednesdays, June 19-July 24, 2019, 6:00-8:00 p.m. (NO CLASS July 3)

With such a variety of textures and patterns in nature, many watercolor techniques, such as glazing, masking, dry brush, and splattering, will be introduced to better enable you to paint rocks, trees, water, or whatever subjects you are trying to represent. A basic knowledge of watercolor and brush handling is a must to sign up for this class, which will guide you towards developing your own painting ideas. Composition and principles of design will also be incorporated.

About the instructor – Stacy Hein 14089089_10207158539147378_4830331076984296489_n
Stacy discovered yoga in 2009, somewhat accidentally, while taking dance classes at a small studio. She took a few classes there and found that yoga was a natural progression from her love of dance. She began exploring the practice through DVDs and other classes in the area, but it wasn’t until 2014 that she began a regular practice. Within about one year, she began researching teacher trainings, knowing that she wanted to deepen her practice and share the benefits of yoga with others. She chose to pursue her 200 hour certification with Erica McHugh at Emmaus Yoga.

Also a dance fitness instructor, freelance writer, and writing tutor—Stacy brings a background of both group instruction and one-on-one teaching experience to her classes. Her teaching style is a union of her passion for words and her love of the discipline, rhythm and meditation of yoga. Students can expect to encounter a blend of poetry and movement in her classes that is carefully designed to inspire and motivate—both on and off the mat.
