Frequently Asked Questions
Who is this course for?
The Watercolor Academy can be adapted for all ages! I've taught people from the ages of 5 to 97 how to paint with watercolors. With templates for nearly all of our paintings, it makes it easy for any age to follow along with the tutorials.
How do I access the Academy?
You will have access to everything in the Academy directly in Teachable. Teachable is an easy-to-use online learning portal that keeps track of your progress so you can easily start and stop at any time. You can access this course at the Lily & Thistle Teachable Creative Studio (https://lily-and-thistle-studio.teachable.com/courses/).
What kind of art supplies will I need to get?
I’ve spent months researching the best supplies at the best price point for beginners. I will give you a complete list with links for your convenience and suggestions of where to buy to get the best deals. Most projects will use the same set of paints and a handful of brushes so you won’t have to worry about always buying more (unless of course you have an art supplies addiction like I do!)
When does the Watercolor Academy begin and end?
The courses inside of the Academy are completely self-paced. That means you can start anytime you want and take all the time you need to complete it. I would suggest that you try to make time for regular practice so you can be successful but, many of the projects can be completed within a hour.
Do I get lifetime access?
You have options! You can choose to purchase the Watercolor Academy Lifetime Access which gives you access forever, or you can choose our membership option which gives you access to ALL of the courses we offer for as long as you are a member. If you choose to cancel your subscription option, then you won’t have access to any of the courses. If you want keep any of the courses forever, you will need to purchase the Lifetime Access.
What is the time commitment required each week?
There are no required time commitments in the Academy. However, I would suggest regular practice of 1-2 hours per week. Practice makes better so of course the more you practice, the better you’ll get!
Do I need art, painting, or drawing experience to enroll?
No – and that’s the beauty of all of my courses! I make sure that everyone can be successful, no matter their art background. I provide templates for almost all of the projects so you won’t have to stress about the drawing aspect. Plus I always have step-by-step video tutorials to guide you through each painting. If you already have experience with watercolors these courses are also for you! It will further your education and provide an exploration of more paintings and watercolor techniques!
What kind of support will I get?
After signing up, you will get instant access to the Watercolor Academy private Facebook group. Here you can ask questions, post discoveries and share with the private community. You can also always reach out to me via email if you have any pressing questions or concerns. I am here to help and cheer you on!
What is the refund policy?
I would never want you to be unhappy! If you not satisfied with the academy, please contact me within the first 30 days and I will provide you with a full refund.
