If you know me in real life, you know that I’m crafty, but not really artistic (as much as I wish I was). But I really like doing creative projects. And I’m usually pretty good at following step by step instructions. When a friend of mine posted about an online Watercolor Class for adults and Watercolor for Kids, I decided to give it a try. Since I know my limitations, I started with the kids watercolor class. I figured I could watch the videos with the kids and do the projects with them. We also have some neighborhood kids who come over after school every day, so I figured they’d enjoy it too.
Since Christmas is coming up, we started with the Reindeer lesson. We had such a great time sketching and painting our reindeer.
And even though I’m not very artistic, I was quite happy with the way my reindeer turned out. We also took a go at painting ice cream cones.
About Watercolor For Kids
Emily Lex is a mom of 4 and lifelong watercolorer and her online class Watercolor for Kids is perfect for teaching kids (and adults) how to paint with watercolors. This class includes eight main video lessons along with a bonus Christmas video and some bonus coloring pages you can use instead of sketching on your own. This class was a huge hit for both the kids and I. We all thoroughly enjoyed watching the videos and trying our hand at watercolor painting. We’ll be doing even more creating over our Thanksgiving break.

Will Be Used Over & Over Again
Have you ever bought something for your kids that they’ve used once? I love hands on activities for my kids, but when I buy a science experiment kit or subscription box, my kids use it once and then never again. With Watercolor for Kids, your kids will pull it out over and over again. (And you may find yourself using it when the kids aren’t even home).

As a mom of middle schoolers, I’ve found that some of our best conversations happen while we’re sitting around the table eating or doing crafts. Over the past couple weeks, the twins and their friends from school have gathered around the table decorating cookies, sketching and painting while talking about their days. I love moments like this and Watercolor for Kids has been perfect for creating some of these moments.
Perfect for Beginners
This class is perfect for beginners…or anyone who wants to get better. The video classes teach the basics of using watercolors, how to mix colors, color theory and includes simple projects that anyone will enjoy.
