Let loose. Have fun. Paint like crazy.

PAINT LIKE CRAZY: WATERCOLOR and MORE is a non-traditional approach to painting for beginners, re-starters and intermediate painters who want to let loose, have fun, and paint like crazy. The technique most often used is wet into wet watercolor, with tips and technique to make successful paintings. We often paint without drawing and without reference photos. The results are loose interpretive renderings of the subject matter. Classes generally focus on painting elements of the natural world, especially landscape and floral.

QUEEN MARY 2, October 2014

Thank you for your interest in “Paint Like Crazy Watercolor”.

Thank you for spreading the word. And especially, thank you to those of you who gently nudged me to have a couple of September classes in Sarasota before I sail away again on September 27, 2014. Wonderful and energizing.

Yes, I’ll be teaching aboard THE QUEEN MARY 2 on the voyage identified on the Cunard website as M421A; 19 nights: NYC to Southampton to Zeebruge to Cherbourg to Southampton to NYC. We leave NYC September 27, 2014 and return on October 16, 2014. Will you join me?

Teaching classes aboard the Queen Mary 2 is an honor and a delight. I am happy to announce: here we go again! I will be teaching two classes per sea day on the full 22 day itinerary identified on as voyage M411 which embarks July 6, 2014 and debarks July 28, 2014. That includes, a 7 night eastbound transatlantic crossing from NYC to Southampton England; Southampton to Hamburg Germany; Hamburg to Stavanger Norway; Stavanger to Hamburg; Hamburg to Southampton and another 7 night westbound transatlantic crossing Southampton to NYC. Are you able to join the fun?


Hello Painters!
The 2014 class schedule was exactly the same as 2013. AND the classes were packed with happy painters. It is very gratifying to watch all of the painters as they try new technique, new papers, new ways of approaching a subject. The results have been very impressive, indeed. Yes, classes resume in January 2015, two days, two locations. If there are classes in the fall of 2014, I will email my regular email list and post here as well. Have a happy summer of painting! Best regards, Maggie
