The Watercolor Masterclass

I love watercolor, 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.

You can join this program no matter where you are on your journey  – from beginner to advanced.

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

No! Watercolorists at all skill levels will benefit from this program – even Beginners. Weekly skill building challenges are focused on practicing and learning specific skills that support the Monthly Learning Objective.  

Building knowledge and skill piece-by-piece and then learning to combine them in a painting is the fastest way to make progress painting watercolor.

I'm just starting out in watercolor. Is this program for me as a Beginner?

Yes! It is. Althought its called the Masterclass, the intent is to teach you how to master this beautiful and tricky medium.  All full-length lessons are presented step-by-step, with clear explantions and especially important points emphasized.  Techniques are demonstrated and explained and important skills are highlighted.

One of the things the Masterclass will do for a Beginner is help them to NOT develop many of the bad habits that self-taught watercolorist often acquire when learning on their own.
