I've been honored to teach workshops and jury art exhibitions for art groups around the country. Currently, I teach two workshops per year. To discuss a three- to five-day watercolor portrait and figure workshop in your area, please contact me at [email protected] or 412.951.9144.
Most of the workshops are appropriate for beginner to advanced levels, although the material will be challenging for students who have never worked in watercolor. The lessons are taught through demos, lecture, presentation, one-on-one instruction, and group critiques. The workshop can be tailored to your group's experience level and interest.

Thank you for all that you shared with us during your portrait and figure workshop at Nemacolin! it was evident how much time, thought, and care you put into preparing for the workshop. The demos, handouts, schedule, and critiques were all fantastic. I am thrilled to be heading home with many new skills to focus on. It was freeing for me to hear your philosophy on failure: The best artists make the most mistakes. --Audrey
Peggi Habets offers portraiture watercolorists an unbeatable course of art instruction. Peggi teaches creative perception, composition, "narrative" (the visual story), use of color, and a complete array of essential technical painting skills. At the same time, Peggi is approachable, personable and totally committed to the growth of her students. I would trade all of the local, one or two-day workshops I have taken in the area where I live for this more professional workshop with Peggi. Her teaching exceeds any I've had. --Jud
I really enjoyed your class and it was truly the best workshop I have had. You were kind and took the time to review each person’s work. You had the right balance of everything to keep it focused and light at the same time. --Marcella
Peggi, thanks so much. Your workshop was one of the best I've attended. In part, because you shared your beautiful techniques in a deliberate, careful way. But, also, it is because you gave so much of yourself to each of us. And, not surprisingly, you followed up with your email, reminding us of the most important points to take away. --Kathy
I came to try to get ideas on how to improve my portraits...and you met my expectations in every way! One of the best classes I've taken!! Loved your sense of humor and demos. --Barb
You did a great job of matching the different levels in the class. Values and color studies were the most helpful part of the workshop. I loved trying new color schemes. --Nancy
The workshop went above and beyond my expectations! It was so helpful and I learned so much. I hope you come back next year. --Julie
Excellent experience. Peggi was wonderful. She was knowledgeable and able to communicate very effectively. She adapted to each participant's skill level and gave one-on-one instruction. --James
