WHO TEACHES THE COURSE?
Suzanne is a Dutch watercolorist who found her passion a couple of years ago in watercolor painting. It has helped her to relax, let go of her perfectionism and to find a balance between private and work. It gives a lot of joy, peace, satisfaction and especially a clear mind, which many people have quite some trouble with. After having immersed herself in all the ins and outs of this medium, she likes to share her knowledge with others. How beautiful is it to learn a new skill that can help you truly relax and at the same time develop your creativity?! With watercolor painting, you create something tangible which will give you a satisfactory and proud feeling. In the past years, she has taught many people watercoloring, from IT developers to space engineers, lawyers, and bankers. Men and women who thought they couldn’t draw/paint, but watercolor painting is something EVERYBODY can do. It may seem difficult, but everyone can learn it!

Definitely! Most of the participants of the Watercolor Beginners Course don’t have experience with drawing or painting and this is not needed, because everyone can watercolor! You will be guided through all the basics and you cannot do it ‘wrong’, so you don’t have to be afraid. Just take that step out of your comfort zone and try something new! Like Henri Matisse says: “Creativity takes courage”.
Watercolor is soothing, you can properly empty your head during watercoloring. In addition, you ‘create’ something tangible, which often gives a satisfactory and proud feeling. You also learn to let go of perfectionism with watercolor (‘overwork’ your painting often makes it less beautiful, you will have to ‘let go’ as much as possible and let the water and pigment do their work) and the best thing is that a watercolor painting doesn’t have to be perfect, the end result is often very different than you might think. Also a plus with watercolor: it is very compact, you need little space!
