Miss a class?
Every class is recorded so that you can follow along if you miss class (or want to practice an old painting). Recordings are posted by the end of the day.
Need to cancel?
Cancel anytime. You will have access to lessons through the end of your plan period.
Where are classes held?
Google Meet. You will receive a link to class when you first sign up. The class link is the same for each week.
What materials do we need?
You can get everything that you need from amazon or your local art store for under $35.
Watercolor paint ($9)
Paint tubes can be messy and difficult for beginners. Start with a paint palette like this. If your paint palette doesn't come with a lid or mixing tray, grab a Tupperware lid.
Watercolor paintbrush ($16)
Round tip brushes like this are great for both wide brush strokes and fine lines. Sizes #2-10 are marvelous, nothing smaller or larger is necessary.
Watercolor paper ($10)
Cold pressed, 140 lb, no larger than 11x14 in. This is an excellent brand for beginners.
Additional materials (around the house)
Tape (masking tape or painters tape is best), pencil, eraser, cup of water, paper towel, a clipboard or sturdy piece of cardboard (to tape paper onto), crayons, salt (table salt works great!), and a clean flat surface area for working.
Can I paint along with my learner?
Please do! Parents paint free :-)
Need to schedule time with Ms. Lauren?
I love seeing parents before or after class. We can also schedule something outside class - just send me an email or text or give me an ‘ol fashioned phone call!
What if I have another question?
Please reach out. I’m here to help ☺️
My 8 year old looks forward to Lauren's water color classes each week. She's smiling from ear to ear while painting because Lauren is engaging, fun, funny, and just also happens to be a pretty great singer. The kids are giggling and having so much fun while learning the many awesome watercolor techniques that Lauren teaches. She's a natural with the kids, and is a wonderfully talented artist. I would recommend her classes to anyone.
My daughter absolutely loves this class. Ms. Lauren is such a great teacher! She keeps the kids engaged and really encourages creativity.
Lauren is amazing with my daughter. Her energy and zest is so infectious and entertaining. My daughter learns a lot in every class and enjoys every minute of it.
My daughter loves the positive vibe of class. She has a great time making art with friends from all over.
Both of my boys love both the class and the instructor! They are both beginners and are very proud of their work. The instructions are simple and clear for the kiddos, and Lauren keeps them engaged for the entire class. They can't wait to do more!
Lauren is a fun and engaging teacher! My student has a great time. I found Laurens communication prompt and thorough.
This class was our first experience with virtual lessons and it was AWESOME. My daughter loved painting with Lauren, who was so fun, energetic and engaging. She can’t wait to try another class with her.
Ms. Lauren is an excellent teacher! My daughter (age 11) has been taking this class for a few months now and her watercolor skills have greatly improved. Ms. Lauren does a great job at teaching techniques, encouraging creativity, and fostering a love for art.
My 9 year old daughter loves this class!! Very fun, engaging and excellent teaching!!

My kids love this class! Lauren is super-fun and brings a wonderful energy to her classes. I can't recommend her highly enough. I have a 12-year-old and a 7-year-old in this class, and they both love it and are thoroughly engaged throughout the lesson.
Amazing class, fun, engaging and with beautiful art as the result. My daughter LOVES Lauren's teaching style and the art they create!
Really fun class. Miss Lauren gives good watercolor technique explanations and constructive suggestions for the project, all while keeping class conversion fun and entertaining. Highly recommend!
My daughter looks forward to this class every week. As a homeschooled child we find it awesome that she can meet other kids and hang out in a safe environment with a teacher who gets her.
Lauren is fun, creative and friendly! My daughter loved all the paintings and tips along the way for improving her skills. I highly recommend Lauren for her encouraging, compassionate and fun approach!
