STAND ALONE CLASSES
I’ve never taken an online class before, how does it work and is it live?
The lessons are pre-recorded since Color With Water teaches students from different parts of the world across different time zones. You can watch videos anytime, anywhere. The one big advantage of a recorded session over live ones is unlimited playability, meaning, you can re-watch the video as many times as you need or rewind to only the parts you want.
Do I need previous art experience?
Not at all. Whether you’ve never painted before or have, but stopped, I recommend starting with Watercolor Painting For Beginners first to get you started on the right track. You will learn a GAME-CHANGING method I developed called the 4 Strengths that is the cornerstone for painting more complex paintings. Learn the foundation, start simple and have fun!
I don’t have strong drawing skills, should I take a drawing class first?
You don’t need to know how to draw. Since the focus of the lessons is about painting and not drawing, I will teach you a quick and easy way to sketch (that even kids can do) so you can start painting right away.
How long are the lessons?
Each activity can be made up of any number of lessons. Each lesson is designed to be short-focused lessons that may take anywhere between 10-15 minutes only.
When does my enrollment start? Does it expire?
Once you enroll, you can start right away! Watch & work at your own pace. We understand that we all have life responsibilities and schedules, you will have total control to manage your own timetable, and did we mention that the videos are yours, for life?
Are the lessons viewable on mobile devices?
It is playable on a desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone. We do recommend keeping your browser (i.e. Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Explorer) up to date. We support Mac OS X & iOS plus Windows & Android operating systems.
Can I download the class?
The lessons are viewed via our online portal. Downloading of the class is not available due to internet piracy. We hope you understand this is the only way to protect the class from being resold but you will have unlimited access and can view the class as many times as you'd like!

I purchased the class but I haven't received an email to access it. What do I do?
Our customer service team would love to help you! First be sure to check your junk/spam folder, as sometimes the email ends up there. If you still can't find it, please send us an email at email address of support with the name and email address that you purchased.

How do I change my password?
Once you have accessed your account using the provided username and password you may change your password by selecting the profile icon in the top right (This looks like the outline of a person) then selecting settings. Scroll down to the section labeled “Password”, here you enter the current password and then the new password twice. Select “Save” at the bottom right hand corner
Will I need any special supplies?
The materials you use do matter but you don’t want to invest in the most expensive ones right away nor would you want to start with sub-par ones (a.k.a. student grade) either. I will show you decent ones to get (not expensive, not cheap) that manage water well. This materials list is provided inside the course.
Do I need a fast internet connection?
You will need a computer and an internet connection, preferably high speed at 5-10 mbps to stream lessons smoothly. Anything below will affect your viewing experience.
I had done so many courses before and I quit from frustration. How is your course different from the others?
I’m here to help you think like water so you can paint the way watercolor is meant to be used.
1) SHORT LASER-FOCUSED LESSONS
My live watercolor painting workshops have given me the opportunity to target and isolate very specific challenges about the painting process, from a learner’s point of view. Over the years, I have found and isolated these multi-layered, overlapping challenges and simplified them into short focused lessons, allowing you to learn only what you need to know at that time, to get you to the next level.
2) LEARN WITHOUT THE INFORMATION OVERLOAD
I’ve distilled traditional art theory & practice into their fundamental essence and thoughtfully produce my material and content so it’s easy to understand (no artsy-fartsy terminologies), I go straight to the point. No extra fluff.
3) SEQUENTIAL LEARNING
The way information is presented, oddly enough, has an enormous impact on what you learn,
how fast you learn, and how you apply it. I designed this course to build new information on top of what you already know. Think Lego.
● New lessons introduce new techniques & reinforce what you learned in previous lessons
● Lessons include carefully designed activities to match the skill level
● Lessons are concise but packed with only relevant information
4) NO SECOND-GUESSING!
Knowing differs from understanding.
Random tips and tricks are good for 1-time activities,
but have you tried painting something else after
and felt like it sent you straight back to kindergarten?
I've been there before. (A few times actually. Sigh.)
You need a stronger foundation to fall back on.
Understanding what you’re doing with your watercolor will take you much further.
● Too much control = Overworked, patchy paintings
● Too much spontaneity = One big-happy-accident-type-of-paintings
● Controlled spontaneity = Fresh, glowing, transparent paintings
5) LET GO OF THE FEAR OF STARTING
What if I told you one tip you can do to sidestep any hesitation?
They say that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line.
What if I told you that the shortest distance between
staring at a blank paper and actually painting on it
are only 4 dots, would you give it a try?
Learn my 4 Strengths Method. These 4 dots are a complete GAME CHANGER that will jump-start the way you paint, right after the 2nd lesson. My students have shared with me about painting with more confidence, enjoying the process more, and painting beyond what they could initially do.
6) HAVE FUN WHILE YOU LEARN!
There’s painting for fun, and then there’s painting to learn while having fun. The course videos are professionally produced to educate and entertain. This balance ensures a variety of presentations, instruction, humor, and pacing so you can enjoy the watercolor painting process more.
So, are you ready to finally start creating your very own beautiful watercolor painting instead of just admiring the work of others?
I can’t wait to help you create your amazing paintings with Color & Water!
