What you'll learn in this calligraphy & hand lettering class:

This class is the first in our Virtual Landscapes the Easy Way series. Though it can be taken on its own, we recommend you also take Session 2 to benefit the most from the learning experience Virtual Watercolor Landscapes the Easy Way - Session 2

Watercolor is the perfect medium to create gorgeous landscapes. In this class, you'll create a bucolic scene with trees, water, grass, flowers, and a serene sky.  I'll walk you through every step, beginning with the essential techniques needed to complete a landscape and how to use household items and regular house paint brushes to create special effects in your landscape that will make painting it a breeze. 

This class is beginner-friendly and no previous experience is required! You will leave with a finished landscape painting that is ready to be framed and you will be proud to display.

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.

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.

Class was very good. The instructor is excellent and provided advance information so that you could be prepared to paint early on. It is very fast paced and tough to keep up unless you have some previous experience. The instructor provided lots of information about watercolors and painting techniques. Worth taking.

It helped to have some previous experience in using watercolor and color theory, but the instructor did an excellent job of presenting alot of information in short period of time. I will take another course with her.

I loved the class! I will definitely take another class. The only reason that I did not give it 5 stars was it was just a little too fast. There were several times where I completely missed the color mixture and/or painting of a specific area (behind the fence). A couple of times I paused to blow dry my paper and when I came back to screen, I had missed several steps. There should be a little more interaction to make sure you haven’t been left in the dust. Also, there were several instances where I ran out of my color in the middle of painting a beginners class I needed a little more direction in that regard. I am happy we are getting a recording so that I can try it again at my own pace! Thank you!

Wonderful beginner's class on water colors. Not having the picture before the class I felt rushed during the class. I had a hard time getting some of the perspectives correct in my drawing. Mixing paints and having enough of the paints ready at the time I needed them was difficult. I felt like I was rushing to keep up to the directions. The finished product was OK but I can see a lot I would like to change. I also liked a few things in the painting. Water color painting is difficult. A simpler painting might have been easier to do. I did enjoy the class and would do another one.
