Why Attend?

Watercolor is a beautiful art medium, but knowing what supplies you need to get started can be so confusing!

Over the past 10 years, we’ve interviewed dozens of your favorite artists (like Sarah Simon, Louise De Masi, Sarah Cray, and more) and helped thousands of beginners get started with painting…

… and during Watercolor Week, we’ll answer ALL your questions about which supplies you need (plus the ones you don’t!) so you can start your painting journey affordably and confidently!
