Are there any watercolor classes nearby?


Dan teaches watercolor classes at the senior center at the downtown Cultural Center (closed now). I’m pretty much self-taught and hang out with the Chicago Urban Sketchers.

You could check at the Hyde Park Art Center, but I suspect classes still suspended / Covid. There may be plein-air artists out there - weather permitting. HPAC has a bulletin board.
