Intimidated by watercolor? Don’t be!

Let’s start by learning all the basics of watercolors, foundations you can build on for years to come.

Then let’s break the rules. Six amazing artists will show you the fun, creative ways they use watercolors to create beautiful paintings in their sketchbooks.

In over 100 videos, you’ll watch step-by-step demonstrations of principles and techniques, learn how to pick paints, mix colors, and use every type of paper, brush and accessory.

You’ll study washes, glazes, mixed media, masking and textures, composition, and so much more.

In six weeks, you’ll be watercoloring confidently and expressively, on your way to making this powerful medium your own.

Each week, you get dozens of new video lessons. You have lifetime access so you can get back to the lessons again and again.

First, Ian Sidaway (legendary author of over 30 books on watercolor and member of the Royal Institute of Watercolor Painters) will demonstrate every aspect of this flexible medium.

Then Sketchbook Skool founders Danny Gregory and Koosje Koene will personally take us to meet watercolor masters August Wren, Inma Serrano, and Ian Fennelly. We’ll see their work, learn about their tools, then watch demo after demo of their special techniques.
