This class in intended to 1) offer beginner painters a chance to see if they like watercolor without making a big commitment, and 2) allow anyone a chance to learn some basic techniques prior to joining the upcoming series of classes, so you would feel more up-to-speed with the other painters, some of whom have taken other classes.  Or you may just want to brush up on your skills.

Happy painting, Beth Bale
