Vaughn Rd - 10am - 2 Hours
Joseph Consolino
Discover the allure of the natural world as you delve into the graceful medium of watercolor painting. Join our workshop and allow an expert instructor to lead you on a journey through the essentials of the craft. Together, we will unlock the secrets of color theory, delve into the art of composition, and refine our brushwork.

As we paint, you will learn to master the interplay of light and shadow, breathe life into landscapes with vibrant color and texture, and embrace the spontaneity of different brushstrokes and techniques. Transform your vision of nature into exquisite artistry in a setting that nurtures creativity and growth. Whether you're a seasoned painter or picking up the brush for the first time, this workshop is a perfect opportunity to enhance your skills and celebrate the wonder of the world around us through the lens of watercolor.

I loved the painting but did not love the long hike with all our equipment. Maybe a shorter hike or indoor painting?
Paige van der Wolf
Hi, I'm Paige! I grew up in the Nashville area but just moved back home after many years living in New York City and The Netherlands. I have worked in high-level arts my entire life, but instead of creating things myself, I was the person who made everyone else's visions come to life. I actually used to think that I wasn't a "creative person"!

After my move to Europe, I suddenly had time on my hands and an irresistible urge to create. I went to my local discount store and bought the cheapest supplies I could find in a ton of different mediums. I tried them all and watercolor stuck! I fell in love with it and haven't stopped painting since.

I am thrilled to be joining Nashville Watercolor Group as an instructor. At my meet-ups and classes, you can expect to find a warm welcome, an empowering place to create, and maybe even a few new friends. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Paige van der Wolf is available for private bookings

Available most Saturdays and Sundays from 10am to 2pm. Also available on occasional weekdays.
Private tutoring, lessons, parties, and commissions.

This is a painting of my oldest son, Mike, when he was 2 - enjoying the snow in his favorite Cookie Monster snowsuit. Mike passed away 13 years ago at the age of 29 from complications caused by a congenital heart defect, so this was a special labor of love!

Title or Location: Halloween Delight
My name is Debbie and I?m 64 years old and started painting in 2020. I have 9 grandkids and this is an acrylic painting of one of my grandsons in his Mandalorian Halloween costume. He could not wait to have this picture taken!Through the years, I found one picture of each grandchild that really speaks to me. When I paint I want to paint what speaks to my heart. It might not be to everyone?s liking but I?m okay with that. I did not want my faces to be traditional art work. I wanted loo

This farm was being sold to developers for building houses. The locals organized and raised money to save it. They volunteer to maintain the property and it is open to the public. The painting is plein air.

Title or Location: iCandy
iCandy is my take on our ever increasing use of smart phones as a source of distraction. It is also a spoof of the marketing of these devices, and the marketing world as a whole, using design asthetics from candy and toy products and advertisements from my childhood in the 80's, particularly the ones emblazoned on my subconscious that played repeatedly during Saturday morning cartoons.

Title or Location: Lambing Season
I live in the Staffordshire countryside so this painting was inspired by the local farming community. This time of year is lambing season. So I wanted to celebrate that with a watercolour painting. It's also a reminder that spring is just around the corner.

Raleigh Watercolor Group
Title or Location: The Valley Beyond
I almost threw this away. Sometimes I have a hard time "pushing through" a painting that I am doing. I'm tempted to stop and say "this is not good, I won't finish it, it's awful". I painted the sky background a year ago and the painting just sat in a corner. One day I decided to just "play" with this piece of paper and I loved what happened! Quite often I find that I need to let my artwork just cook in a corner. Every once in a while I surprise myself!

Title or Location: Los Sue?os Sonoran
I use my small watercolor kit to document the places I experience while traveling and working on tje road. I was able to spend most of the winter in Arizona, spending time in the unique Sonoran desert. Where each saguaro cacti has its own personality within the Sonoran's surreal landscape.

Raleigh Watercolor Group
Title or Location: Lone Oak
After I had joint replacement surgery on my left thumb, my dominant hand, I still wanted to paint. I thought that I'd just play with color using my right hand to wield the brush. To my amazement, I painted with more spontaneity and with a looseness I've been trying to achieve before. Maybe I'm ambidextrous and have only just discovered it (I'm 76).
