The Watercolor Masterclass

I love painting in watercolor and teaching watercolor and hope to be a part of your watercolor journey!

Teaching watercolor for nearly 20 years has taught me ideas and methods that helped folks make the most progress in the shortest amount of time.

The Watercolor Methods Masterclass takes that experience and turns it into a unique, immersive online watercolor learning experience. The program focuses on skills and ideas needed for specific subjects offered in small bits. You’ll build skill and confidence step by step and develop your style and ability in the process.

We take on a new subject – and it’s challenges – every month. Weekly tutorials focus on individual skills needed for the subject at hand. We combine them together in a new in-depth, full-length video lesson each month. It’s all followed up with a LIVE online class that includes Q&A, Critiques of Member Work, and Live Demos for the upcoming subject.

Get added value from the exclusive Masterclass Member Forum. Share ideas, work, ask and answer questions anytime.

All in all, it is a regular, consistent, program that integrates self-paced lessons with LIVE, online class experiences. Think of it as an ongoing class with a new subject every month.

And I look forward to being a part of it with you.
