Virtual Studio Workshop: Watercolor Block-ins with Mario Robinson

Join master watercolorist Mario Robinson to learn how to build a solid foundation for any watercolor painting.

This virtual workshop consists of two 90-minute sessions (Saturdays, August 7 and 14, 1:30—3 pm each day).

Suggested supply list:

– 300 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper
