Online Watercolour Basics Course


This class is designed for the beginner, or near beginner, who is looking for in-depth instruction in this fun and challenging medium.  Jennifer will guide you through basic techniques to get you comfortable with the medium and excited about exploring the endless possibilities of watercolour.  Explanations of materials and supplies, preparation techniques, washes, wet-in-wet, glazing, wet-on-dry, textural effects, colour mixing, and composition are just some of the topics covered in this extensive 8-week course!  Each week Jennifer will focus on a new topic or project.  For the first few weeks, students will work on practice exercises to get comfortable with techniques and paint handling.  As the course progresses, we will move to simple projects, bringing the techniques together for small completed paintings.  Subject matter will include both still life and landscapes.    

This online course includes 8 1-hour high definition video lessons and demonstrations.  Each recording shows a clear bird’s-eye view of Jennifer’s painting, as well as a small thumbnail headshot.   Participants can watch the steps over as many times as they like and pause the recording while they paint.  To complement the instructional videos, detailed written notes packages with images and explanations of all the steps and digital reference photos will be provided for some projects. 

The full Online Watercolour Basics Course package includes a supply list, digital reference photos, 8 detailed lessons with notes packages, colour mixing charts, and comprehensive instructional videos to work through at your own pace! Students will have access to the course content for 1 year from date of purchase.  

The online course content and video links will be emailed to you shortly after checkout.
