What you'll learn in this watercolor class:

Learn how to draw and paint beautiful botanicals in a fun, stress-free environment where absolutely no experience is necessary. This class is designed for both inexperienced students and those who wish to improve their skills. We will cover line drawing, and basic as well as more advanced watercolor techniques to create beautiful flowers in a style I like to call "soft realism".

In this two session class, you'll learn the basics of line drawing and soft shading with pen and ink and graphite, how to transfer the drawing to watercolor paper, how to prepare the paper, how to mix colors from the primaries, how to preserve white areas, and how to paint beautiful backgrounds to complement your floral subjects

In Session 1 you will learn:

  • How to use the materials for botanical drawing and illustration
  • How to translate photographs of flowers and leaves into illustrations using a few basic line drawing and shading techniques with pen and ink
  • How to prepare the watercolor paper and transfer the drawing for the following class

In Session 2 you will learn:

  • Basic and advanced watercolor painting techniques
  • Basic color theory
  • How to add watercolor to your line drawing from the previous session to create a realistic painting

After the class, you'll receive the class recording plus supplementary materials so you can continue learning and refining your botanical drawing and painting skills

About the Instructor

Hi, I’m Jade and I’m an artist, calligrapher, and educator. It is my deepest belief that we can be happier and more fulfilled when expressing ourselves creatively and I'm intensely passionate about teaching and making art accessible to all.

Virtual Class FAQ


What will be included in my Virtual Class package?

One ticket includes an access link to your live, online class. The class will be delivered via web conferencing software and feature a live, professional instructor who will walk you through a lesson as described above. You will have the opportunity to ask questions as well as participate from home.

How many people is my purchase good for?

Each ticket is good for one "device" (i.e. one computer, phone, tablet, etc. you'll be logging in from). This ensures we don't get more people in the class than the instructor can handle. Though we understand some people live together and will be working/learning together, the intent is that each class still allows for the same attention to attendees as if students purchased separately. Please be respectful of this!

Will I need anything from home to use in the class?

You will need a reliable Internet connection as well as a computer or device with which you can access your virtual class. We recommend you arrive to class 5-10 minutes early to ensure you're able to set up your device and connection. Additionally, if the class is more than just a lecture you will likely want any materials listed in the course description as "Materials Needed to Participate Fully", though you're welcome to purchase a seat and sit in and just watch.

Am I able to ask questions or interact with the class?

Yes, you'll both be able to ask questions using the chat function in the video hosting software as well as at certain intervals during the class via voice/audio. If the class winds up being on the smaller side, more spontaneous interaction/questions will be encouraged.


Do I have to show my video or speak during class?

While we recommend you do show your video and speak when encouraged to by the instructor, video and audio participation are never mandatory. We find classes have more fun experiences when people are engaging with one another, but understand not everyone will want to do so and that's ok!



Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

Still have questions? Ask the community.

Refund Policy

Students may cancel any time 48 hours or more before the class to receive a refund. Students canceling less than 48 hours before a class will receive a full credit towards rescheduling or purchasing a different class.

Excellent 2 session course. Jade was enthusiastic, easy to understand and exhibited different techniques slowly and clearly... and she’s so talented as an artist. I would definitely take another if her courses. Well worth the cost which was very reasonable.
