Fun and Easy Watercolor Class

Self paced online course - immediate access!

Hi, I’m Jessica Sanders, a self-taught watercolor and mixed-media artist who loves exploring art and sharing it with you!

Let’s paint a colorful watercolor chart together!!
In this beginner to intermediate class, we will get to know our watercolor paints by creating a fun and easy watercolor mixing chart. :)

I'll be with you every step of the way, as we draw, paint, and explore our colors.

First, we will discuss a bit about WHY - Why paint a mixing chart?

Next, I'll show you how I set up a mixing chart, and give you all the details!

Once we've drawn our chart, we are on to painting! Starting with our pure colors and continuing with our mixes, we'll fill out the grid of our chart.

I will walk you through the entire process, real time, and share my thoughts, tips, and tricks along the way. I may just throw in a bonus lesson or two to keep those creative juices flowing!!

You can follow along and paint with me, as I fill in my chart, or you can explore your own way!

And…..Secretly, almost like magic, we will improve our watercolor skills!

This class is available to Skillshare Premium Members.
