Building Patience, Calm, Creativity and Flexibility Through The Magic of Watercolor!

From simple meditations to creative play, this class offers short explorations that can help you diffuse anger, find calm, outlast sadness, foster creativity, and cultivate joy…building both a positive mindset and painting skills. Short guided meditative skill-builders are followed by suggestions for using watercolor meditations to unleash your creativity. This class is a gentle invitation into the world of to watercolor for those new to the medium, and also an excellent way for experienced watercolorists to hit the reset button and return to “beginner’s mind.”

*Watercolor painting skills include brush control, water control, and pigment control. To the extent that watercolor CAN be controlled, it is done by close observation and a sensitive and flexible response to what is happening in the moment. This class is designed to build the mindset necessary to achieve that.

Week 1: Brush and Water -Guided meditations focused around specific ways to use a brush and subtle observations of water painted onto a paper surface.

Week 2: Paint -Guided meditations focused on watering down paint and wet-in-wet explorations.

Week 3: Color -Guided meditations focused on noticing and controlling the texture of the painted surface, and on lifting paint. 

Materials list:

  • Paper: You can choose any type of watercolor paper, in a small size–no larger than 4″ x 6″
  • Paint: We will use a single color of watercolor paint for the first two classes. You can choose any color. This class is a great opportunity to get to know a new color!
    • In addition to the color of your choice, I recommend that you purchase
      • Cobalt Teal and 
      • Pthalocyanine Turquoise, as these paints exhibit properties we will observe closely in classes 2-3.
  • Brush: We will use a watercolor round brush in size 3, 4, 5 or 6 (your choice)
  • You should also have:
    • something to use as a palette–a plastic lid or something similar is fine for this class.
