“I am so thankful to Carrie for her amazing instruction! This was my first live watercolor class and I was so excited to learn from Carrie! I absorbed so much in just 3 days- things I never would have picked up on my own! I will definitely be doing more classes with Carrie! I’ve already got this one framed and up on my wall. Can’t wait to get it out every year at Christmas and remember what fun I had in this class! Thank you Carrie and Jackie.”
