Watercolors are a great way to express yourself and have fun—but without a few basic tips and tricks, your paper may end up a muddy mess. 

One of my favorite YouTubers is Sarah Cray. On her channel, Let’s Make Art, she has a playlist dedicated to teaching kids how to paint animals—including dinosaurs and dragonflies. Along the way, she explains color mixing and other basic watercolor techniques. All you need is a watercolor set and paintbrush, paper, and the ability to draw or print your own outlines.

Looking for more instruction? For youths, check out our after-school lessons for one-on-one lessons or our field trips for small to large groups. Adults will options on our private instruction page.
