Skill Level:
Supply Kit

In this beginner Craftcare Wellness Workshop Series, we will guide you through the fundamentals of watercoloring while practicing The Five Elements of Craftcare. The repetitive motions of watercoloring brush strokes are excellent for getting into the flow, de-stressing, and improving cognitive capabilities.

You will learn about different washes, mixing color and color temperature, layering, basic sketching and design. Each 1-hour session will allow attendees to learn techniques and ask questions while giving them the freedom to complete tasks at their own pace. With regular practice and check-in between the classes, expect to complete two paintings, socialize, and develop wellness skills that last a lifetime.
