Here’s how It works. First, when you sign up we’ll send you a special link to the event. On the day we start, you simply click on that link. You can watch it on your phone, tablet, computer, or even your TV*.
We’ll start out by building some energy in the morning. You can watch, or participate if you have a camera on your device. Then we’ll jump right into lessons. You can paint along, draw, or take notes.
You can take breaks as you need them because you can watch your replay later. (Every registration comes with replays.) And a couple of times each day, we’ll hold breakout sessions where you can meet other artists and art materials suppliers.
You’ll make friends all over the world. You can talk about what you’ve learned, about your artwork, or just learn about others. It's one of the best parts. We do it a couple times each day... then back to more lessons.
At the end of each day, we’ll have a virtual online cocktail hour, where our host, Eric Rhoads, will carry on a conversation with the entire group worldwide. And, if you want, you can paint along. We’ll provide a live model, a scene, or a project to paint each day.
Please note this goes on for three days from noon to 9 p.m. (Eastern Time). We suggest you block out the time as if you were going out of town for an event. And remember, if you're busy, you can go back and watch again and again.
Oh, if you’re a beginner — or not a beginner, you can join our Beginner's Day, where we will teach the basic watercolor principles at a beginner level. (Even the non-beginners will love seeing the instructors.)
The reality is that art is a process (but it's a lot of fun, even in the struggle). You’ll find yourself painting better as you recall lessons over the coming months as you paint and practice. The more you watch the replays and read your notes, the more you’ll recall. And you’ll see a dramatic increase in your ability following the conference.
