Discover the Best Watercolor Classes in Los Angeles

Watercolor is a relaxing medium where artists combine paint with water to create flowing, unique art pieces. Watercolor art pieces often feel both transparent and vibrant at the same time. In addition, most watercolor paints are affordable, which makes it a great medium to learn, even if you have no prior experience. 

Taking an art class is the best way to learn watercolor in Los Angeles. There are dozens of classes that offer 1-on-1 help and hands-on experience. Teachers can walk you through the techniques to help establish the basics. Then, once you’ve mastered the initial techniques, you can take an intermediate course to expand your knowledge. 

Watercolor classes through CourseHorse are affordable and easy to find in Los Angeles.

Why You Should Learn Watercolor in Los Angeles

Learning watercolor in Los Angeles is a fun and productive hobby that allows for creative expression. CourseHorse offers dozens of classes that fit your budget and schedule. Plus, there’s no downside to taking a watercolor class. Some of the benefits of taking a watercolor class in Los Angeles include the following: 

  • In-person watercolor classes in Los Angeles provide access to a larger community of like-minded individuals, including clubs, organizations, events, and groups.
  • Watercolor classes in Los Angeles can help you make new friends and expand your social circle.
  • Learning watercolor also provides the opportunity to create handmade gifts for friends and family.
  • If you can hone your watercolor skills, you can start a small business centered on advertising and designs. 

Watercolor art is popular for being calming, making it a great option for a stress-free activity. So, you can destress while you learn a new and valuable skill. 

In-Person Watercolor Classes in Los Angeles

Taking a watercolor class in Los Angeles is perfect for those who want to learn new and relaxing skills. It’s also a great opportunity to network and make new friends with similar interests. You can find watercolor classes in LA on CourseHorse’s website. Keep reading to learn more about the most popular LA classes. 

One of the best watercolor classes is the Painting with Watercolors for Adults course. It includes five sessions and teaches color mixing, color application, and brush stroke techniques. Students don’t need any prior experience with watercolor painting to join the class. However, this class does not include the materials, so read the materials list before the first day of class. 

Some of the materials you’ll need include: 

  • A basic set of watercolor paints 
  • A watercolor pad 
  • Two cups or tin cans 
  • A rag or towel 
  • Watercolor brushes 
  • Pencil, eraser, and ruler

Another great beginner class is Watercolor 201, taught by Linda Wehrli. This class focuses on teaching solid brush techniques and how to produce clean, crisp colors. You will also learn the medium’s history and the special characteristics that make watercolor paint unique from other medials. Although this is a beginner class, you will be required to have some background in art. For example, you must have taken Drawing with Graphite 101, Oil Pastel 101, or a comparable class. 

Once you finish Watercolor 201, move on to Watercolor 202 for intermediate students. This class picks up where the first class leaves off and continues teaching students tips and tricks for painting with tube watercolors over four sessions. In addition, students will learn advanced brush techniques, including how to create texture and tone. Students of the Watercolor 202 class should be prepared to start working in design illustration, advertising, or fine art. 

Many watercolor classes in LA meet multiple times over the course of several weeks. However, if you’d prefer a class that meets once, consider Watercolor/Acrylic Painting. Unlike other classes that focus solely on watercolor, this is a mixed-medium class. You’ll learn how to combine watercolor, acrylic, and ink on the same canvas to create a unique piece of art. 

Another class option is the Paint Anything class which meets for four sessions. This fast-paced, energetic course teaches multiple painting mediums, including watercolor, gouache, acrylic, and oil paints. Of course, you can also simply focus on one medium over the four sessions if you’d prefer.

If you follow the course schedule of the Painting Anything class, you’ll learn a new method of painting every week, including how to use non-art materials like liquid masking fluid, spray paint, enamel, and collage. It’s a great opportunity if you’re still deciding which art medium is your favorite — you’ll be exposed to a wide variety of art styles in this class. 

The Water-Soluble Oils 401 course is unique because it combines watercolor and oil painting. You’ll learn to paint with water-soluble oil paints. The students in the class will learn the basics for mixing water-soluble oil colors and brush techniques, including how to paint a traditional Grisaille or tonal painting. The course requires that you take a prerequisite course, so check the class listing to see which classes qualify. 

Virtual Watercolor Classes 

There are several amazing in-person watercolor courses offered through CourseHorse. However, if in-person classes don’t fit your schedule, you can take online classes instead. You get many benefits of an in-person class, including live instructors, but it’s all from the comfort of your home. It’s a great solution for those who can’t commute to class, have busy schedules, or are simply out of town.

Online watercolor classes are a great opportunity for those who want to learn watercolor painting in their limited free time. CourseHorse makes it easy to find an online class that fits your learning style, schedule, and starting level. 

One of the best watercolor classes for beginners is the Watercolor Painting (Beginner/Intermediate) class. There are no prerequisites for the class, meaning it’s open to complete beginners. You’ll learn methods of paint application, color formation, and visual representation over the course of six class sessions. It takes place through a Live Interactive Online Classroom, mimicking a real classroom atmosphere to give you the best experience possible. 

Another good class for beginners is the Beginner's Intro to Watercolor Painting: Single Session. The class only includes one session, making it a good option for those who don’t want to commit to multiple classes. You can try out watercolor painting and decide whether you want to pursue it before signing up for a longer class. 

For students with some background in watercolor painting, consider Watercolor Painting (Intermediate/Advanced). Students will refine their art and look to famous artists for inspiration. The class will also teach students how to find their own personal art style. If you haven’t taken an art class in a while, don’t worry. The start of this course will review the basics of watercolor to reintroduce you to the subject. 

A popular class for online students in LA is the Painting Seascapes with Watercolor course. It meets for six sessions, and students will learn to work from photographs of the ocean to recreate peaceful vistas and crashing surf. Watercolor is the perfect medium for capturing the movement of the ocean, and this class will emphasize that. 

Private Group Watercolor Classes in Los Angeles

Employers, companies, and organizations can give their employees and group members a relaxing reward by signing up for private group watercolor classes for Los Angeles businesses. These private classes will foster an environment of learning and relaxation, while teaching the group members how to paint in a creative workshop. 

One of the best group watercolor classes is the Virtual Watercolor Workshop. The class will ship out the materials beforehand, so your group members will be ready to participate fully. During the class, you’ll learn the "wet on wet" technique and build up layers of paint while still allowing the medium to flow. The course size is flexible, up to 255 people and no matter how large the group, CourseHorse will ship all of the materials necessary. 

Consider the Virtual Watercolor Workshop from the same school if you don't need the materials included. To fully participate, the group members will need: 

  • Watercolor paints (any set is fine)
  • Small and medium round watercolor brush 
  • Watercolor Paper (optional but preferred)
  • Water

The class will teach everything you need to excel in the basics of watercolor and help the group members to see the world in a more creative light. The class meets for an hour and a half.
