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.

Great class! It was so much fun! This is the 4th class of Amarilys's that I've taken and I really like her teaching style and the style of her artwork. Really easy to follow along with great results.
Simple and fun!!
