One of the people I enjoy following on Instagram is Emily of Jones Design Company.
Anna + Audrey + I recently spent an afternoon going through some of the lessons from her Watercolor For Kids online workshop and we loved it. I have been wanting to learn some watercolor basics and the girls were super interested and following along with Emily's lessons was so easy and fun and perfect for an ongoing creative activity that we could do together.
The workshop includes easy to follow video lessons that walk you through supplies and techniques for learning the basics of watercolor.
When I come across things I try out and love I like to share them and this workshop is one of those things. This workshop would make a great gift and/or activity to do with your kids, grandkids, or others over the holiday break.
Now through December 1st you can sign up for 25% off and receive a fun bonus holiday lesson using the code: ALI25.
The girls and I will totally do the bonus lesson this month (and I will likely include that story in my December Daily®). You can also purchase a gift certificate if you'd like to gift this online workshop.
In addition to the kids workshop, Emily also has a workshop called Simplified Watercolor (this might be something super fun to add to your December Daily® album). Included in that workshop is a bonus lesson for holiday tags. Look at these tags (love them and I totally want to make some like this):
I love giving gifts that educate and inspire. I also love gifting experiences and this definitely fits with that intention.
Please note that I did sign up to be a part of the affiliate program for these classes and I will receive payment for promoting these workshops when you purchase. This isn't something I do often at all and I don't do it unless it's something I have tried out personally and genuinely recommend. I feel like this is a wonderful way to connect with kids and to connect with yourself.
