  Enroll in Course

Even a beginner can paint fluidly in watercolor! Used traditionally, watercolor paintings have a fluidity and transparency unrivaled by any other painting media. Often described as the "hardest medium" in which to paint, watercolor doesn't have to be intimidating.

In this self-paced class, professional watercolor artist Angela Fehr will walk you through basic techniques and supplies in watercolor, creating special effects in watercolor, and composing paintings in a loose, informal style.

Color theory, texture and composition will all be explored.


  • Overview of Supplies and Tools. Assemble what you need to get started.
  • Basic Techniques. Experiment with a foundation for working with your materials.
  • Color Mixing in Watercolor. Mix colors in a way that feels useful, purposeful, and fulfilling of your creative vision.
  • Texture in Watercolor. Create the illusion of dimension and surface.
  • Final Project. Compose and create a final painting that uses your newly learned techniques and skills.

Artist quality supplies are recommended and a detailed supply list will be provided in the first lesson.
