Thanks to everyone who registered, the fall watercolor workshops have sold out! Stay tuned to our email newsletter and social media to be the first to hear about other workshop opportunities presented by YMCA of the Rockies.
Join YMCA of the Rockies as we host artist Sarah Uhl, for two creative workshop opportunities this September! Sarah is a self taught artist from Carbondale, Colorado. She uses art as a tool to convey environmental and humanitarian messages. She enjoys working in partnership with brands and organizations to produce artistic works that amplify cause based messaging - either through visual assets or on-site event activations. Her whimsical style and deep personal connection to nature drawl people into her creations on an emotional level.
Sarah will be teaching two watercolor classes over the course of two days during the fall season at YMCA of the Rockies! Register for one or both of these unique opportunities to learn how to express yourself through the beauty of watercolor paints. Each session is $150 which includes all supplies.
