Workshops by Sara Drescher

“I have never been in a learning experience that was more respectful of my level of talent/interest and personalized as this.  She really cares and is so helpful to teach at whatever level you are.” -L. Boyd

“Absolutely amazing experience.  Sara is wonderful at explaining art ideas to communicating them to the student.  It was a safe environment in which to explore art to learn new techniques.” -Melissia H.


**Due to my entering graduate school in the Fall in Lubbock, TX, I will be on a hiatus from teaching ongoing watercolor classes in Midland, TX. I hope to continue my workshops during summer breaks, so if you would like to know about upcoming workshops, check here or please join my mailing list.
