Watercolor Wonderland

Experience the JOY of Watercolor!

What You Will Learn in this Class

The number one question I am asked regularly is “How do I get started using watercolor?”

Watercolor and being in the flow of painting with it grounds me, centers me, and brings me SO MUCH JOY! And I want you to experience it too! 

In this course, I'm covering it all! 

All things watercolor with a twist. 


From paint (insight into all kinds of watercolors and brands) to paper, brushes, techniques (so many techniques), color mixing, surfaces and grounds, sketchbooks, paintings, papercrafting, and cardmaking, I’m covering it all. Did I mention TECHNIQUES? 😉

I’ve spent years enJOYing this medium and I’m looking forward to sharing everything I know in this big honkin’ course.  

Why? Because you asked! 

And I would LOVE for you to experience the same kind of JOY I do when I'm creating with watercolor. To me, it's a magical medium to work with. 

All your questions AND MORE will be answered in this course. And you'll paint along with me. 

This isn't a crash course. It's a deep, wonderful dive. There is OVER 4+ hours of instruction b

We'll splash color around and take a deeper dive into:

Fascinating Florals in Watercolor:

Yes, you can paint flowers and florals. No drawing experience is required. In this session, I will teach you my signature, no illustration needed brushstroke floral techniques using watercolor paint and water-soluble pencil mediums like Inktense and watercolor pencils.


Watercolor for Papercrafting and Cardmaking:

In this session, I’m walking through my easy breezy watercolor techniques for painting stamped images for cardmaking. I’ll be showcasing a big honkin’ floral from my stamp line collection with Gina K Designs. 

I'll demystify and walk you through each video session. This course is comprehensive.


What Do You Need to Take this Class?

Very little to get started. I encourage you to use the supplies you have on hand. The very basics are:

  • Watercolor in pans or tubes
  • Watercolor paper, preferably 100% cotton
  • Watercolor pencils if you have them
  • I supply full-color handouts for you to download that explain everything and more. (Handouts will be LIVE on October 14th)



All video content is delivered in technique-based lessons complete with full-color handouts and instructions for you to paint and follow along. The lessons are NOT sped up. This course takes a deep dive and has a lot of instruction built in. You can pause the video at any time to master the techniques.

Together, we will walk through all of the techniques, paint and practice them together. In the last two video sessions, we'll paint a floral composition AND a floral stamped image. 

25 pages of full-color, comprehensive class handouts are supplied to you for download onto your favorite watercolor paper for the lessons. 



FREE 5x7 Art print download of my original floral painting that I share in class. The download will be available in the Fascinating Florals in Watercolor Lesson.


Add-On OPTION: Art Exploration Kit

This watercolor art supply sampler kit is chock-full of goodies and I'm super excited to bring it to YOU! Everything you need to sample and try watercolor is packed right into this kit, packaged in a zipper bag. This kit is limited. You DO NOT need this kit for the course.
