Single Watercolor Painting Classes

Online Classes For Everyone – Especially Beginners

These watercolor classes are fun and will help you learn watercolor quickly! Each class is online for two hours. 

About a week prior to each class you’ll receive an email with:

  • a description of the painting project and what we’ll be trying to do
  • a downloadable drawing layout to trace on to watercolor paper
  • a downloadable materials list
  • ZOOM video conference link for you to join the class

During the class, we’ll move step-by step through the painting. Each step is demonstrated and explained so that you know what you’ll be doing and why you are doing it.  The combination of ‘what’ and ‘why’ will speed your learning in this tricky medium!

We use easy, basic techniques and a methodical approach with built up layers step-by-step, so everyone should be able to handle the class.
