Set the tone for the year with beautifully simple watercolor! Create a calendar that is all your own in a short amount of time. We will paint watercolor pieces for each month, handletter our months, and lay it out easily. This is a fun class to kick off the new year while dabbling with the creative trends of the moment—watercolor and handlettering!

In this class you'll learn:

  • how to paint elegant linework with watercolor
  • keys to creating a cohesive calendar that's engaging
  • basic brush marker techniques
  • tips for handlettering
  • how to use a design program--you may choose either Indesign and Photoshop, both shown--to create a skeleton design for all of the pages
  • Amarilys' two favorite watercolor brands

This 30-minute class is perfect for beginners, doodlers, and those who like to tackle a fresh project while the enthusiasm is hot.

Amarilys Henderson

Watercolor Illustrator, Design Thinker

I process on paper and I problem-solve with keystrokes.

As a commercial illustrator, I've had the pleasure of bringing the dynamic vibrance of colorful watercolor strokes to everyday products. My work is licensed for greeting and Christmas cards, art prints, drawing books, and home decor items. My design background influences much of my recent work, revolving around typography and florals. 

If anything describes me, it's that I'm an explorer. I am interested in how things work, often bouncing from the fine art world to vectors, from paint to textile patterns. I'm forever ignited by new ideas and projects, aiming to master them while enjoying the process.

While my professional work in illustration and wedding stationery are driven by trend, my personal work springs from my faith. Bold beauty and ingenuity are my aim every time.
