Sketch Your World


I am so excited for the new class at Studio Calico: Sketch Your World! It starts Feb. 1st.
Here's the description:
Expand your creativity! Olya Schmidt takes you on a creative journey filled with practical tips and simple techniques that will help develop your drawing and watercolor skills. Olya will introduce you to the various tools and materials needed to start sketching different scenes and bringing them to life with watercolor paint. You’ll also learn plenty of basic exercises to get you more comfortable using pencils, pens, and brushes to capture the world as you see it!

A few years ago I took an online art class that I absolutely loved - it was my first attempt at drawing and watercoloring. At the time, I made a couple things I was really proud of, but didn't do much at all after the class was over. Here they are:


I am really excited to get back to drawing and painting with the Sketch Your World class! This is just the push I need to play with colors again! And Olya is such a talented artist!

Over the years, I have amassed some favorite watercolor supplies, including Neocolors IIPeerless watercolors (currently sold out at Studio Calico but you can find them on Amazon too) and Kuretake Gansai Tambi. I don't own this little travel-sized Koi set, but I just might have to try it out! :)

Good for you! I think you did a great job with your previous class. I saw Olya's class posting at SC, but am inspired now to give it more thought. Thanks.
