WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
"Took a two week watercolor course at my local art museum. I found myself confused and frustrated after the first day. Watched your videos and applied what I learned from you to the class. At the end of the two weeks, the teacher was astounded at my progress. Funny thing is I learned it all from you. lol. Thanks @watercolorMSfit"
I'm proud to announce! This is the first course in a series of mini workshops - I will be releasing over the next couple of months. These workshops target key skills that you have to know in order to succeed at watercolor. I feel so strongly about these skills - that I've created an entire workshop dedicated to just one topic - in this workshop we will be discussing water to paint ratios and how these ratios affect how we paint on paper. This is a skill that I had to learn the hard way and developed over years of trial and error. But now I get to share all my knowledge with you - in a short and fun video workshop - breaking down this topic and making it as easy as possible to understand. This workshop is basically the training wheels to starting watercolor and if you've struggled with paint mixtures - this workshop is for you!
THIS WORKSHOP IS DESIGNED TO ALLOW YOU TO GO AT YOUR OWN PACE
SNAPSHOTS FROM INSIDE THE WORKSHOP
Once again I've included templates and charts to help those who find drawing challenging!
No worries, just think of this course as a review course for the basics. Remember you can always learn something new as long as you have an open mind about it.
I've also included a packet of worksheets & Informational charts to help you follow along with me during the workshop. I created these to make learning as easy and simple as possible all while having fun!
These are the supplies I will be using in the workshop...

Hi there! My name is Carrie - the artist behind Watercolor Misfit. Perhaps you have heard of me from my YouTube channel, which I started shortly after getting married to my best friend in the entire world in 2012. Since then ALOT has changed and this little hobby has turned into my dream job! Currently, I teach watercolor courses online to my loyal fans - called Misfitians. It's hard to believe now, but this all started when I was in college pursuing my Masters Degree of Education. As most know, being a college student means one is constantly broke. So to earn extra money on the side - I taught art workshops to my students for over 10 years. What's even crazier, is that nearly half of those students went on to win numerous art competitions after training under my supervision. Also to help pay the bills, I painted numerous commissioned portraits and illustrations thinking this was just a profitable side job for the time being.At the time, I honestly didn't give it much thought, but now I realize that teaching art was what I was born to do. Although I took several college art classes and nearly graduated with an art minor - I decided to not pursue it in the end. You see, many of my art teachers simply didn't have the desire to teach. In fact, it wouldn't surprise me if they hated it. This is why I consider myself a self taught artist - simply because I did try to pursue higher art education but was frustrated by the lack of teaching given me while there. So, I graduated with a Masters Degree of Education without the art minor. Although, at the time it seemed like I was taking a step back from art - nothing couldn't be further from the truth. With a Masters Degree of Education in hand, I learned how to create courses from scratch and developable achievable goals for my students to find success. This coupled with my own personal experiences in watercolor - and my filming background are sure to please in a easy to follow in a visually stimulating manner. With the help of my wonderful husband and Misfit Dream Team - Watercolor Misfit is growing faster than I could even dream and I can't wait to share this experience with you.
