Getting good at watercolour doesn't need to take a jillion years or infinity supplies

The Watercolour Academy will show you how to paint amazing pieces of watercolour art in a short space of time, with only a handful of supplies. Oh, and you can do it all from the comfort of your own home and with no pants on. Good, right?

DANG THAT DOES SOUND GOOD
 

Hey there paint pal, I'm Emma!

I'm the creator and instructor of The Watercolour Academy and I'm SO EXCITED you're here! Watercolour has brought me many joys over the years - from starting out as a creative escape, to allowing me to connect with and teach thousands of people online from all over the world, to expanding into my own line of handmade paints - and even a book deal! I love nothing more than helping others discover the magic of watercolour, and I cannot wait to share EVERYTHING I know with you. Let's paint something!
