Karen Robinson Art Workshops

October 28, 2014


I offer Karen Robinson Art Workshops & Lessons for adults or children in my northern Idaho studio or elsewhere in the U.S.  Tap into your natural creativity, try new watercolor, acrylic, or drawing techniques, and gain confidence in your ability to draw, paint, mix colors, fix “mistakes,” etc.  Depending on your needs and goals, I’ll cover basics such as materials, tools, color mixing, washes and glazing, or more advanced concepts and techniques.  I’ll provide a relaxing, supportive learning environment by encouraging group discussions and positive critiques.  I’m always happy to address individual questions because I believe if someone asks a question, others are probably wondering the same thing.

I schedule most workshops & lessons by request – if a number of people request a workshop, I’ll set one up.  (I recently did a “Watercolor & Wine” 40th birthday party for 8!)  To schedule a Karen Robinson Art Workshop or private lesson in my north Idaho studio or in another area of the U.S., please contact me at or 208-597-5918.  

Idaho Studio workshop details:  Class size is limited to 8 students – spaces tend to fill up quickly.  4-hour workshops cost $35 per student; 2-hour workshops are $25 per student.  Private lessons are $35 for the first hour and $18 per hour after that.  Refreshments and painting supplies are included.  Payment is due at registration and can be made through PayPal on this website (recommended) or by contacting me directly.  If the class is cancelled for any reason, or if you notify me at least 48 hours in advance that you can’t attend, you’ll receive a full refund.  With 24+ hours’ notice, your refund is 50%; with less than 24 hours’ notice, you get a 10% refund.  Refunds can be applied to a future class.

Welcome! I’ve been teaching watercolor for 6+ years now, and recently decided it would be fun to start a tutorial blog describing some aspect of an individual painting or a fun technique that others might enjoy trying. (more…)
