MONTHLY 4-PERSON STUDIO MASTER CLASS with Roland Lee
2 Days with Roland Lee in his private studio classroom with only 4 or 5 Students, St. George UT. These small-group classes are for experienced painters, but you do not have to be a professional. Classes include a lot of one-on-one time focusing on specific needs. The typical pattern consists of a one or two hour morning demo and/or Powerpoint instruction by Roland with the remainder of the time spent working on your own individual paintings. You should come to class with ideas for potential paintings or paintings in progress. It is also okay to bring finished paintings to talk about. Classes are held monthly on Friday and Saturday. Cost is $300 per person for both days. email or call 435-673-1988 for availability. See more information and materials list below.

Roland Lee usually presents two outdoor workshops from his St. George studio each year. Located just 45 minutes from Zion National Park, and only minutes from Snow Canyon State Park, St. George provides the ideal setting for plein air instruction and vacation-style scenic watercolor workshops. Regardless of the subject matter, each workshop includes both studio and outdoor sketching and painting in various locations, coupled with in-studio powerpoint presentations and live demonstrations. If you want to re-charge your artistic batteries, this is the place to do it.
What to expect
All Roland’s workshops are intended for painters with some previous watercolor experience and a knowledge of basic watercolor painting techniques. You don’t have to be a pro, but we do want you to feel comfortable. No specific paints or materials are required. Just bring what you like to use. A suggested materials list can be found below. Typical workshops consist of teacher demonstrations, powerpoint presentations, and actual student painting time under Roland’s supervision. At least two plein air outdoor painting workshops are offered each year in southern Utah’s spectacular National Park country. Classes generally meet from 9am to 4pm each day with a 1-hour lunch break (on your own). The Class fee is due at reservation. You will receive a full refund if cancellation notice is given 30-days prior to class time. No refunds for cancellations will be given after that time.
In response to requests from his many workshop participants, Roland Lee has now released a series of new step-by-step instructional videos for online download. Each video is shot with multiple cameras, and uses both dialog and on-screen text to demonstrate in real time his watercolor techniques. Each demo features a complete painting starting with the planning and thumbnail studies to the finished matted painting.
