More about this course


Paint and play along with artist and teacher, Jessica Sanders!

Let's make lovely leaf prints with watercolor together! We'll play with watercolor, and practice negative shape painting - a very important skill in watercolor painting.

In this class for beginners, or anyone who wants to relax and have fun with their art, we will print leaves and negative shape paint with watercolor.  The leaf prints are light and loose! We are not focusing on realism. We will use negative shape painting technique to bring out the lovely leaves!  

After demonstrating the techniques for leaf printing and negative shape painting, I will share 3 different examples of leaf print paintings. The lessons are real time, so you will be with me every step of the way! 

This is a happy painting class. That means we are here to have fun while we are learning! Art doesn't have to be hard - it can be fun. After all, that's why we started painting - to enjoy it!

Let's get started!!
