Join watercolor artist Sarah Peterson for this three-day class inspired by the exquisite natural surroundings of Hallam Lake. You will experience the wonder and success of wet on wet technique as you discover your own artistic "voice." A close up look at nature's miracles will inspire your work whether you are a beginner or an experienced artist. The excitement of success with watercolor and the experience of wonder will guide your artistic explorations well beyond this class.
Please come to ACES at Hallam Lake prepared to learn, explore and enjoy the wonders of watercolor! We will send you a materials list a few weeks before the class.

Sarah Peterson (a.k.a. Tootie Forbes) grew up in Aspen, in the days of dirt streets and no movie stars. She attended C.U. for 2 years and then graduated from the Boulder Valley School of Nursing. She returned to Aspen and worked in the Aspen Valley Hospital for a few years before delivering her first child there in 1976. She moved to Boulder in 1977, where she and her husband raised their 4 (now grown) children. She has been a studio potter for 22 years and is well known for her signature trout majolica ceramics. However, her true love has always been watercolors, spending summers in Aspen at the Anderson Ranch under the tutelage of her mentor, Anstis B. Lundy. She has exhibited both her ceramics and watercolors in numerous shows in Boulder, Denver, Aspen, Ketchum, New York, Key West and San Francisco.
Her paintings show a unique use of watercolor, expressing the delicate and ethereal qualities of her subjects in vivid contrast with darkness. Visit her website to learn more about Sarah and her work:
