Why do I want to offer this course:

I am a completely self-taught artist with absolutely no formal education in art. When I started painting realism using watercolors in March 2015, I had no idea where to start, how to paint, and what subjects to paint. I tried to learn from YouTube videos and from various watercolor blogs. I committed several mistakes and learned from each of my mistakes. I soon figured out a strategy for learning fast and in a more efficient manner. This strategy helped me to gain confidence in painting in a matter of a few months and also helped me to figure out how to paint absolutely any subject in a realistic style using watercolors.

In my workshops, I work on student’s mindset and help them realize that they can paint whatever subject they want once they master the basic watercolor techniques and learn how to analyze and plan before starting a painting. Through this online course, I want to share my knowledge of painting in watercolors and provide every possible guidance so that the students of this course can learn to paint in a realistic style like a professional artist within a very short time. By participating in this course you will learn how to let go of the every-day stress through developing concentration and also be able to build up a strong understanding of arts and watercolor painting. My unique teaching strategy will help you to learn painting in this medium in a much faster and enjoyable manner.

What is included:

  1. Videos, downloadable PDFs, worksheets and exercises for practice
  2. Member community inside a private Facebook group
  3. Several live training sessions by the tutor.
  4. Weekly live Q & A session for solving problems posted by students once a week.
  5. Step-by-step painting by participants from scratch to finish under guidance from the tutor.
  6. 1-hour feedback session after the completion of the painting project.  
  7. 1-hour career guidance and a mentoring session on the last day of the course.
