For The Love Of Learning | Cool Watercolor Workshop For Kids (And Those Who Love Them)

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.

    I just bought this for my kids for Christmas, thank you for the code! I’ve been looking for a “something to do” gift for them and I think they’ll love this. I’ve been wanting to learn watercolor so I’m excited to be able to do it with them, too.

    Thanks Ali! I just got this to give to my family for Christmas too! This is going to be a perfect "screen free" activity for us to do together during Winter break! And I'm super excited about those Christmas tags too. :)

    I signed up! Thanks so much for sharing these types of creative adventures for us. I have always wanted to learn watercolor and have picked up watercolors but just basically have no idea where to start. This will provide a great start for me.

    This is awesome- thanks for introducing me to something new! My nieces and nephew are visiting for Thanksgiving and we always like to get in some crafting time. This will be perfect!

    Hi, I just signed up for the Simplified zWatercolour class after reading this post. Hope to actually start it next month, but may have to wait for January. I cannot draw, but I love to paint, so I am excited! I also love the blog she does, and have been excitedly looking through her tutorials—big fun! Also planning to get some of the books you read last year. I just finished The Water Dancer Tuesday, and just loved it. Very magical and moving. When I saw how much you liked it too, I decided to check out other Ali5star books! There are quite a few that I am interested in. So thank you for all your sharing!! Lots of fun! Reading, art making, knitting, and scrapping is my life these days—and I love it. Now, if I can get physical too—life will be perfect! Thanks!

    I’m thinking about the kids class for my niece, she just turned 14. Do you feel age wise she would benefit?

      I would check out the Simplified Watercolor vs. the kids class - probably more age appropriate (even though I totally enjoyed the kids one).
