Fundamentals of Watercolor

Instructor: Lesia Sochor

Cost: $70 general / $63 members

Location: Outside at Waterfall Arts

Dates: Wed. July 29 and Thurs. July 30

Times: 10:00AM – 1:00PM

*RAIN DATE: Friday July 31, 1:30PM – 4:30PM

Ages: 18+

ABOUT THE CLASS: This class will explore watercolors’ unique and unexpected properties. We’ll become familiar with washes, gradations, and bleeds, and painting on both dry and wet surfaces. With some control and luck, images will appear. Working plein air (outdoors) lends itself to more immediate responses.

*Some materials will be provided by the instructor, but students are expected to bring their own watercolor paper, paints, and brushes. Upon registration, you will receive further details about what to bring to the course.


Public health and your personal safety is our top priority.  

All in-person Waterfall Arts programs in the summer of 2020 will be held outdoors and physically-distanced. If materials are provided for any program, they will be prepared at least two days in advance and packaged in individual materials kits for each participant. For programs that take pre-registrations online, students will receive advance notice of any materials they are encouraged to bring to the program, for their own use. All programs are being designed such that participants can maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from one another and from the teacher, at all times – whether seated or in movement. *Masks are required (particularly during times of instruction and discussion), for all in-person Waterfall Arts programs.

Open-sided tents will be set up on the lawn to help provide protection from sun and rain. Participants are encouraged to bring their own umbrellas, large hats, or other forms of sun protection. When used, public tables and chairs will be wiped down and sanitized before and after the run of the program. Building access will be provided for participants who need to use the restroom or refill their water bottles (with our no-touch cold water dispenser). Wearing a mask is required when inside the Waterfall Arts building, and hand sanitizer is available in the building as well.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: Lesia Sochor is a graduate of the Philadelphia College of Art. Sochor is a dedicated and enthusiastic teacher who believes “anyone has the ability” to create. Sochor has lived, painted, exhibited and taught in Maine for 30 years. She has been a visiting artist in schools through the Maine Arts Commission, co-founded the Art Annex, a school for youths and adults, taught in the public education system and has done several residencies.
