Watercolor experience with Suzanne taught me that I can also embrace more alpha activities having so much fun and plenty of benefits

I’ve learned more from this crash course than from an 8-week watercolor course that has cost me more money AND time

The workshop gave me a good taste to make me want to experiment and learn more on my own afterward
Everyone had the same task, but created different results
Watercoloring, among other things I did, helped me to soften, create something out of nothing, and just be

Definitely! Most of the participants of the Watercolor Beginners Crash 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”.
With a group of at least 5 people I also give private workshops (possibly on location). Think of a birthday party, bachelorette party, etc. Get in touch through email@example.com
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!
If you follow the Watercolor Beginners Crash Course, a watercolor starter kit is included. The starter kit consists of a palette with professional quality paint from Winsor & Newton, a Princeton brush (size 6) and a block of watercolor paper, 300gsm from the brand Fabriano. The set has been carefully composed based on the best materials to have a kickstart with watercolor, which you will enjoy for a long time.
