Paint a Watercolor Advent Calendar

Imperfect autumn leaves in watercolor

Inside this watercolor course

Feel the Christmas spirit by painting a cute 20-minute postcard in watercolor every day.

Yana wanted to get her Christmas mood going, so she created an advent calendar full of watercolor postcards, and you get to discover each one as a surprise! And, of course, paint them with us.

True to an advent calendar, we will unlock only 1 gift (painting lesson) per day. Each painting takes only 20 minutes to complete and is perfect for beginners. Every postcard explores watercolor techniques while teaching you how to paint a cute Christmas-inspired subject.

Course level: Beginner

Quality Video & Sound

We use professional equipment in a studio to record our videos. The sound is crisp, the image is clear and you will never miss a detail! Watch from any device from anywhere in the world.

Easy To Follow Lessons

Every course has a clear structure: from art tools to a color palette to the first layer. Every stroke is demonstrated from 2 angles and every technique is explained. And if you have questions you can always ask us directly.

Strong Theoretical Basis

No guess-work and intuitive painting. Our lessons are based on theory and academic knowledge which give students the ability to paint with confidence. You will not only know the "how" but also "the why".
