Watercolor class & Creativebug giveaway

watercolor class on Creativebug

I’ve been a huge fan of Yao Cheng‘s gorgeous work for a couple of years now so I was super pumped to find out that she is teaching an online beginning Watercolor class on Creativebug that was just released (and an Intermediate class will be released in a couple of months!).

I love how watercolor is reemerging again and so many artists, like Yao, are showing how it can be done in a fresh way.  Her work is modern with gorgeous color palettes and she has an amazing mastery of her brush. Yao Cheng watercolor on Creativebug

The class is divided into two parts:

  1. Part 1: Watercolor supplies and basic techniques
  2. Part 2: Mark making and expressive brush strokes

I took a watercolor class when I was kid because I saw all the cool things my mom was creating, but I haven’t touched it much since. I can’t wait to  relearn the proper way to use the brush to create those gorgeous effects.

And good news! Creativebug works on a subscription basis, but they just dropped their price from $9.95/month to $4.95/month making all of their creative classes super affordable, but today they are giving away a 3 month subscription to a reader.

  1. “Like” The House That Lars Built on Facebook.

  3. Bonus votes if you share the giveaway (and let me know in the comment where you shared it).

Contest ends Wednesday, March 11th.
