Acquiring and mastering major watercolor techniques (on wet and on dry).
Controlling the amount of water on your brush and on your paper.
Finding harmonious color relationships and learning how to mix different shades.
Creating spectacular works with minimal effort.
 Not to copy, but to see and express coherently.
Not to do extra work, but to focus and highlight the main things.

This course is for those who already have some experience in watercolor and, most importantly, love this medium. And of course for anyone who just wants to find new hobby, overcome stress and use watercolor to escape for a while.


If you are just a beginner and not very confident in using a brush or are just learning how to use watercolors, this course will help you gain confidence in choosing and mastering the most suitable approaches. 


If you are already an experienced watercolor artist, you will learn new tips and specialized artist’s techniques that will help you to master your skills and create spectacular watercolor paintings.

Certificate upon completion

Upon completion of the course we will issue a certificate. The certificate could be used as a proof of your qualification's upgrade at work (if it is related to arts) and for your private affairs as a recognition of your mastery in watercolor. 

Full immersion

We don’t only teach you to follow a pattern or copy a piece, we teach you to think like an artist. We show you how to see the beauty in line and form, to express the mood of the picture, to call and direct the viewer’s attention and to carry the work from an idea to painting.

Consistency

The lessons of the courses are built from “simple to complex” and in each subsequent lesson you will use and combine knowledge and skills gained in the previous one. This allows you to build a solid basis and achieve independence in painting.

Mobility

You no longer need to spend time commuting to the art studio or adjusting to the instructor’s schedule. You can make your own schedule and go through the lessons at a comfortable pace.

We guarantee...

In case after 1-2 lessons of the coursе you realize that watercolor painting is not for you, 

YOU WILL GET YOUR MONEY BACK!
