Class Description

Description

What you'll learn in this watercolor class:

In this class you will learn the techniques to create an abstract watercolor painting using “wet on wet” technique. This process can be a source of relaxation and creativity in stressful times. By building up layers of paint and allowing the medium to flow, you will create a beautiful piece of art. The techniques you will learn can be applied to a number of painting styles and is a foundational skill for watercolor painting.


Materials Needed to Fully Participate:

  • Watercolor set. Any set is fine, but the following is recommended (includes Watercolor paint, brushes, and watercolor paper) https://amzn.to/2Yb3J3h
  • Small and medium round watercolor brush (any small & medium brushes, the following recommended: AROIC Watercolor Brushes
  • Watercolor Paper (the watercolor paper is pretty important and I recommend at least 140 lb watercolor paper) - https://amzn.to/3cxnczU
  • Water

About the Instructor:

Hello! I am a sculptor and painter using inspiration from nature to create intuitive works of art. All of my artwork is made with the intention of highlighting the small beauties in life so that we can feel more connected to each other and to the earth.


Virtual Class FAQ


What will be included in my Virtual Class package?

One ticket includes an access link to your live, online class. The class will be delivered via web conferencing software and feature a live, professional instructor who will walk you through a lesson as described above. You will have the opportunity to ask questions as well as participate from home.

How many people is my purchase good for?

Each ticket is good for one "device" (i.e. one computer, phone, tablet, etc. you'll be logging in from). This ensures we don't get more people in the class than the instructor can handle. Though we understand some people live together and will be working/learning together, the intent is that each class still allows for the same attention to attendees as if students purchased separately. Please be respectful of this!

Will I need anything from home to use in the class?

You will need a reliable Internet connection as well as a computer or device with which you can access your virtual class. We recommend you arrive to class 5-10 minutes early to ensure you're able to set up your device and connection. Additionally, if the class is more than just a lecture you will likely want any materials listed in the course description as "Materials Needed to Participate Fully", though you're welcome to purchase a seat and sit in and just watch.

Am I able to ask questions or interact with the class?

Yes, you'll both be able to ask questions using the chat function in the video hosting software as well as at certain intervals during the class via voice/audio. If the class winds up being on the smaller side, more spontaneous interaction/questions will be encouraged.


Do I have to show my video or speak during class?

While we recommend you do show your video and speak when encouraged to by the instructor, video and audio participation are never mandatory. We find classes have more fun experiences when people are engaging with one another, but understand not everyone will want to do so and that's ok!


Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

Refund Policy

Students may cancel any time 48 hours or more before the class to receive a refund. Students canceling less than 48 hours before a class will receive a full credit towards rescheduling or purchasing a different class.

Review Summary by CourseHorse

Students at Virtual Beginner's Watercolor appreciate the interactive nature and small class size of the program. They praise Kiya Nicole and the other instructors for their clarity, patience, and friendliness. Many noted that they enjoyed the introduction to different watercolor techniques and tips for using various materials. The class's emphasis on experimentation and abstract work encouraged many to step outside of their comfort zone. While some students wished there were more structured lessons or in-person interactions, the majority said they learned valuable skills and felt more comfortable exploring watercolor on their own. The course also encouraged many to continue practicing watercolors and to enroll in additional classes. Here are three key insights from reviews: 1. "The instructor gave great direction and I enjoyed the techniques that were shown for watercolors." 2. "The instructor was great, very friendly and informative. We learned a couple of different watercolor painting techniques and had the freedom to create whatever we wanted, just following the flow." 3. "The teacher was great! She got a sense of everyone’s level before she began and made everyone welcome. She explained what she was doing step by step, and gave us specific directions while still allowing plenty of room for original exploration."

It's the same class. It's not uncommon for people to retake the class and create different paintings each time.
