About This Class


Do you want to explore your creativity without breaking the bank?

Do you have Crayola markers, but you're not really sure what to do with them?

Fun and creative art projects do not have to require expensive materials. You can get started with the supplies you have around your home. I'm sure you have some Crayola markers that you can use and you can start with the paper that you have to create beautiful art pieces. 

It truly is amazing what you can do with your Crayola markers.

I'm going to teach you how to use them for faux calligraphy, for brush lettering (which they often call Crayoligraphy), how to add an ombre effect and blending with your letters, how to add shadows, how to add extra embellishments and much more.

I will also teach you how you can use your Crayola markers like watercolor paint to create finished pieces you display in your home, give away friends as gifts or even make them into cards that you sell.

I'm excited to walk you through this class step-by-step on how you can use your Crayola markers to their fullest.

Ready to learn the art of lettering and watercolor, the easy way? I know what it's like to be a beginner. And I know what it's like to battle the inner critic. The fear, self-doubt, and comparison.

But, I have learned to embrace the artist in me and have re-discovered the joy of creating art.

Art can help you:

  • Relax and have fun. It's been an amazing form of self-care for me.
  • Discover the power of color. Creating art can bring you so much joy.
  • Create beautiful pieces you can display in your home or give as gifts.
  • And so much more!

I'm passionate about teaching others and love seeing each of you have the courage to embrace your creativity and choose to create art.

In my classes, I will take you step-by-step through the learning process and cheer you on in this beautiful journey of creativity and color.
