You’ve tried to start painting. You bought supplies, got them all out on the table, pulled out a fresh sheet of paper...and all you feel is paralyzed.
You’re trying to learn but don’t know if you should be practicing brush strokes or painting flowers to get better.
You're frustrated with yourself because what comes out on paper is not what you had imagined in your mind.
You’ve watched plenty of video tutorials but you’re still lost on how to work your palette and you have more questions than ever. You’re trying to piece together how to watercolor on your own, with no help.
You wish someone would just guide you step-by-step in an order that actually makes sense, and that you had a way you could just ask questions when you need to.
A five-week online course that will build your foundation and creative confidence in watercolor.

This is a foundational course in watercolors. This means that all lessons are focused on laying the groundwork for you to learn watercolors through mixing colors, stroke exercises, and what I call "application projects". These projects are focused on applying what you've learned to small projects. We will combine everything you learned to paint a simple landscape. Keep in mind that this is not meant to be a subject-based course, but rather a course that is meant to establish your confidence, hone you basic skills and prepare you to have the confidence to continue painting your own projects in YOUR unique style!
You will have access to a private Facebook group community where you can meet fellow course students, share your work, and get feedback. While you do not get 1-on-1 access to me, you will have access to the private Facebook group and access to all future live creative office hours that occur in the group!
Each week you can expect the exercises to take anywhere between 2-4 hours (maybe longer if you get lost enjoying your painting time!) However, keep in mind there is no pressure for you to complete and turn in homework. This course is meant to make watercolors enjoyable - so move at your own pace, give yourself grace, and have fun!
Absolutely not! You can paint beautiful watercolors without being able to draw. In fact, it'd how I do most of my paintings and I'll show you how! If you're still feeling unsure, I go over basic drawing and composition in one of the course bonuses so make sure to watch that lesson before getting started with the course!
You have 30 days to try out the course. If during this time you are unsatisfied with the course in anyway, please let me know and I'll issue you a 100% refund. I ask for homework because I only want students who are willing to be present in the course and actually do the work. Read the full refund policy here.
The number of lessons vary per Module depending on the topic. Each module is meant to cover a specific topic so that you are able to go back and reference the lessons easily (without having to scroll through a long video). Module 1, for example has 7 lessons. All lessons are video with audio consisting on a mix of live overhead and closeup shots as well as some slides. In total, there are over 30 lessons in the course!
I rediscovered watercolors early last year after 10+ years of trading traditional art for digital design and quickly realized that this was something that brought me joy and reignited my creative passion. My friends and family were surprised that I had this hidden talent and encouraged me to share, so I started teaching! I’ve been answering all types of questions through my blog, email, and local workshops, but I knew I could reach so many more people looking to uncover their creativity with watercolors.
I created this course because I believe we are all creative and everyone can find joy watercoloring with the right guidance and support.
I’m excited to see what you create in the course!
