What you'll do

Join me for relaxing and fun watercolor painting experience and leave with your own painting matted and ready to frame! For those visiting the area, you will leave with a beautiful souvenir and an unforgettable memory of your time in the Great Smoky Mountains.

We'll gather within the park in a covered picnic pavilion. The class will begin with a short introduction to watercolor painting. I provide all materials and will have everything prepared so we can jump right in! We'll begin by debunking the myth that watercolor is a difficult medium. I'll give you some tips and we'll practicing a bit before we jump into our actual painting.

Capture the beauty of the autumn leaves! I'll walk you through the painting, step by step, providing tips along the way. Depending on the speed that you paint, you may be able to complete two paintings in our time together.

I look forward to teaching you skills that you can take and use long after you leave the Smokies.

I am a primarily self-taught artist that loves meeting people, having fun and PAINTING!! What better way to combine those things than teach classes and meet new interesting people visiting or living in our area. I’ve been creative all my life but didn’t start painting until ten years ago. I have worked in watercolor, acrylic and oil. I've won "people's choice" awards in art shows and taught many classes. I am honored to have my works displayed in homes and commercial buildings throughout the United States.

This was a great experience! Lori was awesome! Painting leaves in the Smokies was a wonderful, unique experience that we really enjoyed. Lori taught the class so well that it doesn’t matter if you are experienced in water color or just learning. Would highly recommend this to anyone.

We had a great time. We had taken a class with Lori in the past and were excited to see this Autumn Leaf painting class with her on AirBNB Experiences. She showed us some optional ways to paint with watercolor to get different effects. We left with two completed paintings. She actually matted one for us and had it packaged and ready to go when we left. The snacks were a nice touch. We are locals so we hope she offers more of these. Painting in the park on a crisp fall day was perfect!
