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 some Loose & Lively Watercolor Hearts!  Fun for beginners and experienced painters :)

In this class, we will learn a super simple way to make brushmark hearts, and how to make a mask from contact paper (sticky-back shelf liner).  Then we will explore 3 different heart paintings!

Then it’s project time!  Choose your favorite watercolor heart, and paint it - or choose all 3!

These lovely little hearts will make fantastic gifts for your friends, or wonderful greeting cards!  Don’t forget to share it with me and your fellow students in the Project Section.
