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 wonderful whimsical watercolor cottage together!

This is the second class in the Elements of Art Series. This class focuses on the Element of Shape.

Each class in the series is a stand-alone class.

In this class, I'm going to take you through ALL of the steps for sketching, inking, and painting a wonderful whimsical cottage. I invite you to sketch and paint along with me in each real-time lesson.

The cottage is whimsical, fun, and imaginative!

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.

What students are saying...

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.
