Watercolor on Aquabord 6-Week Course with Alisha B. Whitman

Have you heard of Aquabord? It's a new, clay surface made specifically for watercolors. Aquabord is extremely forgiving, which makes it great for beginners and more advanced painters who change their mind halfway through a painting!

Come let Alisha help you get comfortable painting on this surface that acts so much differently than paper. She'll walk you through techniques that work best on Aquabord, go over the pluses and minuses, and even show you how to frame your paintings (spoiler alert - you don't need glass!).

Suitable for all levels of experience. 

*For more information/questions, please contact Alisha at:

You will need 4 small aquabords (5x5 or 6x6) and two larger ones (8x10 or larger).

*The following supplies are my recommendations. You do not have to have the exact supplies or brands I use - if you already have materials, please bring them! My goal is to help you learn HOW to paint, not just replicate what I've done. Even if you're a beginner, however, I strongly recommend using professional-quality paints. It really makes a tremendous difference!

My recommendations:
-Watercolor palette with a lid (preferably with wells for paint and space for mixing
-Watercolor paint brushes - I recommend getting a flat brush, either 3/4" or 1", Rounds sizes 10, 6 or 4, 2. And a scrub brush or 1/4" Willow's Blender Velvetouch brush. (Jack Richeson & Co Grey Matters Water Media Brush Set is a great option).
-Watercolor paints in tubes  - You could get by with warm and cool reds, yellows, and blues (like the Daniel Smith Essential Mixing set) but I also like to have secondary colors, and some neutrals like burnt Umber, Burnt Sienna, Yellow Ochre, and Indigo. You don't need white or black watercolor but a white gouache can be useful.
-Light sketching pencil
-Kneadable or white artist eraser
-Paper or cloth towel
-Water container
