ENROLL IN THE WATERCOLOR SUMMIT 2.0!

DOES THIS SOUND LIKE YOU?

You love the look of watercolor and gouache, but you don't know where to start.

You've been frustrated by watercolors or gouache in the past because you couldn't figure out how to control them or get the right consistency.

You've always had a passion for painting, but lost that spark somewhere along the way and need the inspiration to start again.

Introducing the Watercolor Summit 2.0..

The Watercolor Summit 2.0 was originally slated for August. Travel interruptions due to the Coronavirus have delayed some of our filming schedule, so we're releasing seven completed lessons NOW, and the remaining final lesson is scheduled to be released in Fall 2020.

"I was nervous about taking the Summit because I was fairly new to watercolor and thought I couldn't keep up. I was very pleasantly surprised! This was the first online class I've taken, comparing it to a class I've taken here [locally] I honestly feel like I was getting more one on one attention with the Summit. The teachers were very organized, explained every step very well, and were very encouraging. I also liked that they shared their knowledge of supplies, brushes, paper, paints etc etc.

I can look at work I did a year ago and work I did from the Summit and I'm amazed at how far I've come using the techniques I've learned. Everything from making a palette to brush strokes. I paint totally differently now.

I have told other friends about the Summit and they would be interested in taking it......and I would take it again should other topics and examples or more advanced classes be offered......I am an expert now you know.... LOL....but will always keep learning!

- Cindy M."
