Flowers bring us such joy, don’t they? Ralph Waldo Emerson famously penned, “Earth laughs in flowers.” Do you find yourself wanting to paint them for that very reason?  In this workshop series (each is a stand alone class), I’ll be taking a different flower each session and demonstrating how best you can capture its essence in expressive colors and strokes. The goal is to let these flowers “breathe” on paper – not by super realism (use your camera for that), but by learning how to capture basic form with minimal strokes, lost edges, and bright fresh colors. I admit, it’s a challenge not to overwork or “over-describe,” but SUCH a fun challenge. The rewards are beautiful flowers with your own personal touch that stay forever. Use your favorite paints and brushes to follow along with me. 

Hi, I’m Ruth Korch


For over 30 years, I have offered classes and private lessons in calligraphy, watercolor and art journaling. Although I find great joy in teaching new skills and techniques, I see myself more as a coach than a teacher. I’m convinced that within each of us there is a creative person longing for expression. I have found that when encouraged and nurtured, that part of us (of you) can blossom and transform how we experience life. My role as a teacher/coach is to help you discover more of what is already within you and find new and beautiful ways to express your unique story.

Hi Ruth, I want to let you know just how much I’m enjoying the watercolour class!!! The pace of the class is perfect and the information you pack into an hour is phenomenal.” Carol Walls

Ruth has an easy, real style in the teaching of her Beginning Watercolor classes. Her love of watercolor painting is infectious and inspiring! I especially liked that she emphasized there was no wrong or right way to paint, only your way! Carol King

I enjoyed this Beginning Watercolor class very much. Ruth covered all the basics in a lively, engaging format. She also introduced us to a bit of history and watercolor artists along the way. I know I will use these recordings to continue to practice and improve my skills at home. Cindy Ruby

Thank you for the wonderful class. I really enjoyed the mix of Art history with the painting techniques. I feel like in 6 sessions I have begun to learn the basics and I am anxious to learn more. Thank you Ruth!! Bethany Koubsky
