Hey, painty pal! Yep you. Stop wasting your valuable me-time trying to crack the code on watercolour alone, and spend it creating paintings you love instead. This is your complete roadmap for frustration-free, fuss-free, FUN-FULL watercolour.
You are not alone. I've done all of the above (minus the phone call, Sharon knows I only respond to texts), spent all of my free time and money (and more time) figuring things out the hard way. Collected a bunch of supplies I didn't know what to do with. Felt like I would NEVER 'get' watercolour. Wanted to throw in the towel and just take up baking or something.
Former Executive Assistant turned full-time artist. Know what that means? Before art, I was juggling crazy calendars of CEOs, diffusing office tension, putting out administration fires, and figuring out how to do things better and quicker to get RESULTS. And that was just before morning tea.
These days? I apply those same problem-solving skills to art, so you can get maximum watercolour results from your minimal free time. Why? Cos your me-time should be for doing something enjoyable! Not pulling your hair out.
A complete roadmap 'here's what you need, what to do, and HOW to do it' membership designed to build your skills efficiently from the ground up, make you a more confident artist, and allow you to actually ENJOY painting!
Cos art should take us to our Happy Place. Not run an express service to Frustration Station...
Get back to basics! The fun-damentals will teach you everything from the types of supplies out there, how to use them, colour theory, techniques and troubleshooting.
After the fun-damentals, it's time to apply what we know! Use the 10 existing and future monthly topical classes to apply your knowledge to projects and diversify your skill set.
Go beyond painting! The masterclasses will teach you fun extras like digitising your work, how to sketch, how to take photos of your work for websites, social or portfolios.
Don't get stuck again! Jump onto one of the group bi-weekly calls and get feedback on your work, answers to your burning questions, continued support and encouragement.
All classes in The Watercolour Academy are based off 3 to 6 colours and 1 to 3 brushes (with optional extras of course). You'll learn how to do more with less, and this means you can splash out on higher quality supplies, cos you'll need less of 'em! Quality over quantity.
Watercolour is one of the most DIFFICULT mediums out there - don't struggle alone! The short but sweet tutorials, masterclasses and mini-masterclasses will break down all the complex parts of watercolour so you can get painting sooner.
We learn better together - and when we get feedback on our work to know how we're tracking. Get both with The Watercolour Academy! Connect with other students, submit work for feedback, and join the fortnightly live group chats.
Understandable. Academy member or not, you deserve to know what's up! If you'd like to be kept in the know when enrolment opens again, new blog posts go live or when any other fun stuff is happening around here, jump on the email list and you'll be kept in the loop!
