Students will learn the basics of watercolor in this three-session evening class with the Museum's William R. Hollingsworth Fellow McKenzie Drake. In each session the group will have a short conversation in the galleries, and then return to studio classrooms to paint. Designed for beginners, but open for anyone wanting to practice their skills, this class will sharpen everyone’s skills. No experience necessary.

About the Instructor:
Born and raised in North Carolina, McKenzie Drake is no foreigner to sweet tea and the all-inclusive "y'all." After graduating from Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee, in 2017 with a BA in Art and Political Science, McKenzie enjoys inspiring others to think creatively in and out of the studio. Her art has been featured in multiple group juried exhibitions, community-based events, and is featured in the Rhodes College permanent collection. She now continues her practice as the William R. Hollingsworth Fellow at the Mississippi Museum of Art in Jackson, Mississippi, where she leads family and studio programming.
