Explore Watercolor


With 20 unique painting lessons, you'll explore a variety of styles, subjects, and techniques. Each day you'll learn more and more about what you enjoy and want to do next within the scope of watercolor.

Yearning to paint but is life just too busy?

Not sure how to start and stop a project when you have a moment to paint?

Find yourself lacking ideas whenever you finally find a moment to paint?


You're in the right place.


In this course, you'll not only learn about the mindset of a habitual artist, but you'll also be provided with twenty short tutorials to begin putting your mindset into practice. With over 140 minutes of video, you'll be guided through it all as if I was right there beside you.


This course is laid out with five paintings per week for four weeks. As the lessons become available one week at a time, you'll be able to create an intentional art practice, setting yourself up for success with watercolor. This class is completely a-synchronous (done at your own pace) and yet it is structured to help you set up a habit if you follow the week by week timeline.


Watercolor is one of the best painting mediums to try even with a busy life. It's low maintenance and easy to start and stop in seconds.
