    This was my second class with Sandy, after colored pencil jumpstart and I enjoyed.
    From color theory through a variety of technics, this course sets you on the road for exploring more of this medium.
    A great way to find out if this medium is for you, without braking the bank!

    This class was my entry in watercoloring and it was so helpfull to me. I tryed watercoloring before but all I done was worst and this class shows me how I could do it better. Sandys kind of teaching had helped me to understand what watermanagement and color consistency is and how importand it is for a good painting. Thank you Sandy!

    This is a great course for an individual wanting to learn watercolor. Sandy’s videos are very detailed and she gives a through explanation of what she is doing so you can grow your own skills as you follow along. The course really does touch on all different aspects of watercolor from color theory to water management and more. I highly recommend the course.

    This is an excellent class! It was just what I needed – I am pretty much a beginner and have found myself over my head in several workshops and classes. This class walked me through the information I needed to begin to really GET watercolor. Sandy’s upbeat presentations and down to earth perspective was exactly what I needed.
    I love that I can go back and review topics whenever I need to. Perfect.
    Thank you, Sandy!

    This course is fundamental in teaching watercolor. The skills and color theory is taught in a structured and well ordered sequence. Sandy’s teaching style ensures students are encouraged to engage in the learning process and her teaching ensures students are successful over time and practice. The content is set up so students can review and retake challenging skills at their own pace. I love how Sandy relates to her own artistic journey which encourages me to keep trying and challenging myself through art.
