Watercolor for Those Who Don’t Think They Can with Marla Snyder (Guest Presenter Mar. 1-2)

Discover the Beauty of Your Own Creativity

Watercolor for Those Who Don’t Think They Can with Marla Snyder (Guest Presenter Mar. 1-2)

Explore the world of watercolors in hands-on workshops with artist Marla Snyder. No experience required – just the desire to learn!

Prior to her teaching career, Marla was a graphic artist for over 30 years. Her classes for “those who don’t think they can” developed from her own experiences of learning to draw and paint. Entirely self-taught, she was inspired to help others discover their own creativity.

“My method involves a step-by-step plan that teaches people to learn to look,” she says. “If you can’t see it, you won’t be able to draw or paint it.”  

Marla has brought her signature workshop to community centers throughout Chicago’s North Shore. Students leave her classes feeling accomplished, with newfound confidence in their artistic ability.

“It’s important to remember that if we want artwork that’s picture-perfect, we should just take a picture,” Marla says. “If we want artwork with creative flair, feeling, and expression, we should give ourselves permission to become loose with our interpretations.”

Watercolor is a relatively inexpensive medium and can be a very meditative process. Marla hopes those who attend her workshops will be inspired to continue creating at home by finding a local class and a teacher or mentor to help develop their skills. She believes anyone can become an artist.
