Artworks by Mary Townsend, Watercolor Academy student
""When I found a new course, Watercolor Academy, I was 82 years old. I said to myself, even if God only gives me three more months to live, I can also give something to myself. As a retired pedagogue, I know the skills of didactics, methodology, psychology and I meet all of them all the time in this course. From easy to difficult, from known to unknown, etc., all of this is taken into account by our mentors and they gradually lead you to a higher level of painting. I am particularly enthusiastic about the theoretical part of this course. Now I really enjoy watercolor and I'm looking forward for my progress""
Artworks by Mišo Serajnik, Watercolor Academy student
"If anyone has a passion for watercolor painting, I would certainly recommend them to take the Watercolor Academy course."
