We created the Watercolor Academy to promote genuine artistic values, classical painting techniques and the rich heritage of traditional fine art. In Watercolor Academy, we teach traditional, time-honored watercolor painting techniques. We show how to create realistic, vibrant, and skillful watercolors. We encourage to seek inspiration in the cultural traditions of the Great Masters, nature, and life.
