About This Class


Hi, I’m Jessica Sanders, a self-taught mixed media artist who loves exploring art and sharing it with you!

Let’s paint a Loose & Lively Watercolor Galaxy!

In this class for everyone, we will learn watercolor techniques such as lifting, keeping a wet edge, and using contact paper masking - All while painting beautiful watercolor galaxies.

In the first half of the class, we will paint 3 bookmarks, creating galaxies with 2 or 3 colors of watercolor paint.  Then, we will freestyle it, choosing any colors that make you happy!  

In the second half of the class, we will paint a large watercolor galaxy with a planet.
