Virtual Art Lessons for Teens and Adults

There are so many different ways to paint in watercolor. I have a very simple online art class with step-by-step videos in real-time, so you can paint with me. This is a beginner class. We will draw on our paper first and then paint.  

Have you ever wanted to learn how to paint but feel intimidated? I can help with that.

Maybe you think you need some unique talent or artists are born with a talent, but the truth is all professional artists practice to get good at their art. They practice every day. Play and practice and practice and play with their brushes and paint every day. And only when an artist has practiced enough do they produce beautiful paintings. 

My watercolor online painting school has references, tips, tricks, and step-by-step video tutorials.

“This class exceeded my expectations! Karen is very clear and guides you step-by-step in the creative process! It makes it easy to follow her instructions. Both my 6 year old boy and my 9 year old girl loved the crazy paint class. They keep creating more and more pictures. Great job Karen and Thank you.”

“Mss Karen is so creative and helps us be more creative than most teachers. She helped me take a simple project like the sun line lesson and make it so much more interesting. ”

“Mrs. Barge is my favorite teacher. I have taken every one of her summer and winter camps. She is now teaching me how to paint acrylic on canvas. My mom says we have run out of room for my art. We are going to have to buy another house.”

Ashley S. (Age 8)

“Love Karen’s enthusiasm level, and personality. Her class is done well in every way: organized, actionable, great pace. Her drawing prompts and suggestions are going to be very helpful to me. The downloadable documents were very helpful to re-enforce remembering. Thanks Karen!”

“As a beginner artist, I truly appreciated your “ease” in your demeanor: you are very approachable, Karen, and easy to be with. Your projects have a positive aura, confident yet not intimating which allows a pleasant environment to create art! I loved your video workshops … I also loved the Christmas Paint Party”
