Your zen and your untapped creativity are waiting to be discovered in our brand-new Illustration With Watercolor Class ($19), the latest addition to our online class suite. Self-taught artist Meera Lee Patel teaches how to find creativity and relaxation through the creation of a frameable painting. And for those still happily in holiday R+R mode, it’s a nice, easy transition into a new year of creativity.

Illustration With Watercolor Online Class

In this class, Meera teaches a watercolor style that’s heavy on imagination, personality and freestyle, yet finds structure in the more traditional fundamentals of painting. Learn what a meditative process painting can be as you create an original painting of a woodland creature, complete with gorgeous foliage and floral frames, like the one you see below!

You may recognize Meera’s trademark style from her artwork in the B+C Shop. Her illustrations capture the magic in nature with childlike wonder, using the bold colors of her native home in India.

In this class, you’ll learn how to:

— Practice meditation while painting

— Create a color wheel and mix color palettes

— Create brush strokes

— Blend and shade colors

— Conceptualize, sketch and paint an animal

— Add hand lettering and other details
