What you'll learn in this watercolor class:

Watercolor is a versatile water-based medium that is perfect for making free-flowing artwork. It is all about enjoying the process of creating, not just worrying about the final result. This makes it the perfect CraftJam to pair with a glass of wine this summertime! Bring a buddy and get creative in our Floral Watercolor Workshop for a fun-filled night painting beautiful flowers.

With the skillful instructions of JamMaster Carol, you will get a thorough introduction to this classic art form. After hands-on practice and step-by-step instructions, you will use your imagination to compose a final masterpiece that is all your own.

In this class, you will know:
  • What materials to use for watercolor
  • Basic watercolor painting techniques, i.e. solid wash, wet on wet, wet on dry
  • Basic color theory and color blending
  • How to create watercolor florals and wreaths
  • How to compose a final art piece
Take home a hand painted art piece you can frame or give as a gift. 

Please Note:
  • This class is beginner-friendly; no experience necessary! 
  • We’ve got all the materials you’ll need ready, including brushes, an assortment of paper, a range of colors to choose from and flowers for inspiration. 
School Notes:
We are BYOB friendly! Crafting is paired best with your favorite drink of choice! But, you must be 21 or over. Younger? Just have a mocktail. No one will notice ;)

When faced with so many options, it is natural to feel a little worried that maybe you should have went with another class. However, when it comes to signing up for this class vs. other watercolor classes, you will not be let now. The instructor was confident and warm and made you feel like you were a natural (even if you don't believe what you are working on expresses that). Her demonstrations were easy to follow and she taught you just enough techniques to feel confident to create your final piece. You will have fun and put your creative juices to good use.

The floral watercolor workshop was very well done. Our instructor, Carol, taught us how to paint 2 different flowers, and 2 different leaves. She gave us plenty of time to practice each flower (maybe a little too much time) and walked around the group several times, giving individual suggestions and hints. At the end, we created a floral design, and we got to take it home. I'd be interested in taking other classes at Craft Jam, if they are all taught as well.

We had a full class, and although it meant we didn't get a ton of time with the instructor to help us one on one, it did make for a really fun + friendly atmosphere! The instructor walked us through the basics and then built on those concepts to show us how to make flowers. I'm fairly artsy, but I actually struggled with watercolors a little. I improved as the class went on and I walked away with a beautiful print that I made myself. I've since bought some watercolor supplies of my own and have been practicing at home! I would take this class again just for the fun of meeting other people and practicing the basics again.
