Beginners will find this class useful, but students of any level are welcome to enjoy this course. So join me, and let’s have fun painting!

You will learn

Once you’ve finished the guided lessons, your project is to draw the subjects on your own and use the techniques we discussed in the class to paint them. After you’ve completed the projects, please share them and feel free to challenge yourself. Challenge yourself to create your very own tropical Christmas themed illustrations. Use the tips in the class to see different shapes within the forms you are creating, then paint them using the watercolor tips.

One great way to use your paintings is to create Christmas cards. So practice, experiment, have fun and upload your project to show what you have learned!
