About This Class


An easy watercolor intro with colorful LA artist and designer Emily Keating Snyder

In this class you'll learn how to:
+Mix colors
+Create ombre gradients
+Try out forms of mark making
+Use restrictions to get more creative
+Gather the best supplies

I'll also share some info on the art historical concepts and inspirations involved with this grid-based style of making art. Watercolor skills will be improved, but just as importantly, we'll use abstract geometric painting as a way to relax and approach creativity in a fun, no-pressure way that allows for happy mistakes.

In the class project, I'll take you step-by-step to create a colorful watercolor painting on paper. It's a simple concept that allows for infinite possibilities. Take a peek at the class project to learn more!

My happiest place is tinkering in the studio. The smell of paint. All the textures of different materials. The satisfaction of trying something new, even (especially) when it doesn’t work. My sketchbook takes the form of a million scraps of paper with more messy notes to myself than actual sketches. In life and in my work, I’m constantly seeking organization, simplicity and order then letting it all go in favor of curiosity and play.
