What educators are saying

Excellent resource, and a life saver! Really quick and easy to prepare! My students had fun with this, and created amazing landscape paintings!
This really takes the pressure off. The students are walked through step-by-step, various techniques are presented and it helped them to do a decent watercolor.


This is an in-depth look at creating a watercolor landscape painting including a lesson and activities on practicing watercolor painting techniques. Perfect for an Intro to Painting class in middle school art or high school art classes. Through this lesson students learn various watercolor techniques and how to apply them to painting a watercolor landscape. 

Not only will students learn important watercolor techniques, but they will also be encouraged to do it in a personal way by selecting an image of a landscape they have a personal connection to.
