🔎 Virtual Class Details

Never painted before, and not sure where to start? Beginners can learn easy painting techniques through step by step lessons in our Beginner Watercolour for Kids class! This live online art class is a fun and creative way for children to learn and practice painting techniques starting from age 6 and up. It’s also an easy medium to clean up compared to other types of paints! While this painting class is recommended for kids, adults who are complete beginners are also welcome to join us and learn the basics of watercolour.

🤓 What to Expect in Class

Every week, the artist instructor will introduce a different beginner painting technique or subject including landscapes, characters, and animals. Foundational painting techniques will include blending colours, practicing proper brushwork, and creating cool textures like splatters, salt effects, and more! During your 1 hour virtual art lesson, the instructor will demonstrate how to mix, blend, and paint step by step, as well as provide personal feedback and guidance to support each student during and after class.

Most watercolour painting projects will be completed in a single class or two, and kids are encouraged to submit their artwork to Google Classroom with the help of a parent to get written feedback from their instructor if they need additional time to finish their painting after the live class — perfect for students in grades 1 to 3.

This is an ongoing weekly class. Join in virtually anytime!
