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 some Loose & Sketchy Christmas Baubles - balls, ornaments - you know what I'm talking about!

In this class for beginners, or anyone who just wants to enjoy painting and a bit of loose sketching, I will demonstrate for you 3 different Christmas bauble paintings in watercolor! These little paintings can be turned into holiday greeting cards, and can also be framed. It's a fun, and easy way to make some happy Christmas cards.

I'll be with you every step of the way, explaining each part of the process, from tearing the watercolor paper, to sketching, painting, and adding final details. I'll also demonstrate a quick and easy way to mount the paintings on blank cards, for you friends and family.

This is a happy painting class. That means we are here to have fun while we are learning! Art doesn't have to be hard - it can be fun. After all, that's why we started painting - to enjoy it!

This class is not a realistic class. The approach is loose, impressionistic, and abstract.

Above all, our focus is on relaxing, staying loose, and enjoying the painting process.

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

This class is may be included in Color Me Creative Art Community Membership with Jessica Sanders, and may also available to Skillshare Premium Members.

Amanda W., Skillshare Student

" the art teacher we all wish we'd had growing up. "

"Jessica is such a fun and engaging teacher.  I just adore her style of teaching and encouragement and would easily compare her to Bob Ross of our generation. She's like the art teacher we all wish we'd had growing up.
