What you'll do

Create your own masterpiece with the pencil, pen and watercolor! I'll guide you step by step to create a your own work of art. Once you've learned the basics, you can create endless versions.

Arrive ready to have fun! Everything will be set up and ready to go. After reviewing some basics, the first step is to do a very light drawing in pencil. Once you have your subject drawn, you'll choose the colors you want to use and the fun begins! I will guide you through adding colors using watercolor paints. Add layers of color and within no time, you’ll have a beautiful, completed painting. Don’t worry! You CAN do this! The pictures you see here are done by ladies who said they have no artistic talent.

I will help you mat your masterpiece and you'll leave with your own artwork ready to frame and hang!

The class is very casual. Drinks and snacks are available and you are welcomed to take breaks in the sunroom or play with my dog, Lucy. If anyone in the class prefers, Lucy can be put in her crate. She doesn't mind watching us from a distance!

Meet your host, Lori

Host on Airbnb since 2014
  • Identity verified
I love painting, having fun and meeting new people. A nice combination for an AIRBNB experience host! I am a primarily self-trained artist and have explored a number of mediums but love to teach watercolor. I sell my watercolor pieces online and in some local boutique shops. I’ve sold larger abstract pieces to collectors throughout the US and do commission work on occasion. My “real job” is far removed from painting! I have had a long career as a Certified Financial Planner but balance working in numbers with creative activities.

My husband, Mike, I live in Maryville with our little Whippet mix, Lucy.

Where you'll be

Your painting experience will be at my home, located in beautiful Maryville, TN unless you wish to schedule a private class in another location. Maryville is about an hour from Sevierville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg and less than 30 minutes from Knoxville. You can check out my studio, grab a cup of coffee or something cold to drink and relax in the sunroom with a view of the mountains in the distance.
