Class Series: Color Mixing & Sketching with Susan Brown

Have you always wanted to learn how to mix colors and greys to enhance your painting skills? How about sketching techniques to have memorable references of your travels?

In this three-part series, get ready to unleash your artistic side and learn new techniques from the talented Susan Brown. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned artist, these workshops are perfect for anyone looking to improve their skills. Don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity to explore the world of color mixing and sketching on watercolor paper and a 9×12″ canvas to make memorable memories!

The series takes place over three Wednesdays in June, each session is three hours:

Class #1: Wednesday, June 5th, 2pm – 5pm
Mixing basic greys for subtle shadows and color contrast
Begin sketching exercises

Class #2: Wednesday, June 12th, 1oam – 1pm
Mixing white and grey with color for tints
Sketching exercises continued

Class #3: Wednesday, June 19th, 2pm – 5pm
Painting and sketching either outdoors or from a photograph

No experience necessary.


$105.00 for the series (Drop in’s for each workshop may be available at $40/class, but not guaranteed; as space is very limited.) Registration required through this Eventbrite link.

I’m asking that you take all three workshops as they are cumulative, plus I like to tailor what we do to each student. I purchase and prepare materials based on class registration, therefore registration is non-refundable. Otherwise, if you cannot attend, feel free to share your class reservation with a friend.

Once you sign up a materials list will be sent to you. It won’t be extensive, or expensive, but you will need brushes/pen/pencil, watercolors, and a sketchbook to keep.


Susan Brown has taught painting at Ghost Ranch, New Mexico, and through various recreation departments. She has shown at Santa Cruz Open Studios, and other juried gallery exhibitions. Her work is sold through the Homeless Garden Project Store, where she donates 50% of all sales.
