Learn to paint with watercolors
File this under “things I tried in Quarantine.” While everyone was baking bread, I decided to try out watercolor painting. It just sounds so fancy and refreshing, right? And I found the perfect solution for this new artistic endeavor: the Let’s Make Art box makes it easy to get started.
Each week, a new video tutorial on YouTube is released with the step-by-step instructions. The videos are free so if you happen to have all of the watercolor supplies on hand, you can follow along with the tutorials. The art projects are all so pretty and designed for all levels.
My daughter questioned, “why did you paint little hamburgers?” Lol. My macaroons don’t look like the professional’s macaroons. Good thing Sarah, the instructor, makes you repeat an oath to not compare your art to other’s work at the beginning. She has such a happy, soothing voice which makes the painting experience relaxing and fun.
Who knew that watercolor came in liquid form? Not me… and it’s nice to have a professional pick out the right watercolor paper and supplies. The paint is much more fun with brighter colors than your kids’ watercolor set.
If you’re looking for a creative outlet, a Let’s Make Art box subscription takes the intimidation out of painting with watercolor. Monthly subscriptions are $35. Note: When I signed up, I also purchased the recommended brushes and paint tray for an additional $20. Happy painting, y’all!
