Learning Watercolors Should Be Affordable


College level art courses cost between $1200 and $6000 plus 12 to 60 weeks of your time. In-person lessons cost at least $1200 per year. Yikes!

WCM is just $16 per month (or $11.99 for yearly) for five painting challenges per week plus hundreds of full-length projects and member perks like our 30-Days to Watercolor program for beginners and our member-only community.

We have designed a super-special course that covers all the watercolor basics.

30 Days Skills

It’s called…

30-Days to Watercolor

Each bite-sized lesson in 30-Days to Watercolor includes simple paint-along projects that teaches these core concepts and allows you to build your skills quickly.

Together we’ll build your watercolor skills and give you a solid foundation to progress onto the Daily Challenges…

Over 3000 artists of all AGES and SKILL LEVELS have grown their painting skills with our tutorials!

2. Build A Painting Routine





The Daily Challenges are a continuous series of small, easy, projects that you can fit into quick 20 minute painting sessions.

Get ready to see AMAZING progress while having lots of fun with these bite-sized projects. A new Daily Challenge is released every Monday – Friday.

Why our members love
Watercolor Mastery...

You can cancel ANY TIME through your membership dashboard OR by emailing us at [email protected] and we’ll be glad to help you cancel.

YES! You can always upgrade/downgrade your membership.

Just email our team ([email protected]) and they can help you change plans.

No! The price you sign up with will remain the same as long as you are a member. No surprise increases.

There is no better place to be for a total beginner. Before you start the Daily Challenges, I want you to go through the 30 Days to Watercolor program that comes free inside Watercolor Mastery.

From the very first lesson you’ll be painting fun, recognizable subject matter that will keep you inspired to move to the next step.

YES! We offer a price break (25% off) for the Yearly membership. You can see the price savings in the pricing table here.

We don’t offer discounts for Monthly memberships.

Yes! The Daily Challenge lessons are pre-recorded and get released every week day at 12:01am MST and are available for the entire month (plus the whole previous month’s challenges are available too).

The Full Length Projects, 30 Days to Watercolor course, as well as other special workshops inside the program are always available to access.

The only pressure you’ll feel is from yourself, and that’s a great thing!

Nope. You can upgrade or cancel your account anytime – for any reason. If you cancel before the end of the billing period, you’ll retain access until that period is over.

Nope! While you certainly can do your own sketch, you don’t need to because I provide a sketch with EVERY watercolor project!

You simply print out my sketch and trace it onto your watercolor paper. (I show you every step of the process inside the “Getting Started” module)

Bonus Content: I also teach a couple of neat tricks that non-sketch artists can use to EASILY draw outlines of their own photos before painting them in watercolor.

Of course! We’ve got members from all over the world.

There is a complete list of supplies used in each tutorial in the description of every video. If you do not have the exact paper, paints, brushes, etc. that’s OK!

Just use what you have available and try to use colors that are close. I recommend following the “30 Days to Watercolor” tutorial to help you understand your paint colors.

Invest in good quality paper and one or two nice brushes and you’ll be all set!

No! Regardless of which day of the month you sign up, your card will not be charged again until the same day of the next month or year, depending on the plan you chose.

If you purchase the Monthly plan, you will have access to the tutorials for a full 30 days from the day of your payment.

If you purchase the Yearly plan, you have have access to the tutorials for a full 365 days from the day of your payment.

You may cancel either plan at any time.

No problem at all – we want you to be totally happy with your Watercolor Mastery experience. And if the program is not for you, then we make it easy to reverse course.

If you signed up for the Monthly or Yearly plan you can cancel your membership with a single click under your billing page of your account and never be charged again.

Additionally, you have 30 days to request a full refund for any plan. All you need to do is email us within the first 30 days ([email protected]) and we’ll be happy to send your money back.

YES! One of the perks of becoming a member and accessing the reference images and instruction is that you may use your own artwork how ever you choose. I believe every work of art, even if created with the help of instruction, is embedded with your own style and artistic choices.

Please feel free to gift, sell, and exhibit your creations. Keep in mind, however, that if you DO decide to enter your work in competitions, it is usually a requirement that you use only your own original reference images.

I have spent the past 2+ years watching SO many of your tutorials and have learned beyond what I thought was possible! Now I’ve been able to take what I’ve learned and can complete my own paintings from pictures or drawings. It’s such a relaxing and lovely time to paint and I owe it all to you mostly for making it so easy to learn the techniques and the supplies. And a huge THANK YOU for supplying the outline for the times when i just want to get right to painting and ALSO showing your drawing process for when I’m challenging myself with my drawing skills as well. Many artists don’t always do that or both and i just wanted you to know how important and awesome it is. Thank you for sharing all of your talent and time to teach others in this way that allows for us to unlock our own abilities and joy.

Before this course I struggled finding subjects that were appropriate for my skill level so I would try something and fail miserably, get discouraged and quit painting. Not that I paint so much better yet (I still have ugly results sometimes) but I make beautiful paintings sometimes and more and more often as time goes along. I practice regularly on the daily challenges. I’m better able to assess whether a subject is too much for me or not, so when I try something on my own. I’m able to have success (or get myself out of a “painting pinch”). I’ve made adorable handmade greeting cards for friends and family and have started to enjoy my retirement more and more every day. I’ve grown as a person by not expecting myself to be perfect all the time, giving myself the grace I’d give to others and feel okay about it. Life is too short not to be happy and watercolors have made me a happier person. This self-paced painting class has turned into so much more, like a self-esteem class!!

I’m really enjoying Emily’s tutorials. I think she’s a great teacher for all levels of students. I consider myself an intermediate watercolor artist who mostly focused on portraits prior to joining her classes. She has helped me to get better at certain techniques such as blending and brush techniques such as using a wet clean brush along with your color brush to blend. She puts out great tutorials nearly everyday and her voice is very easy to listen to and understand. She has a great library of subjects to learn from and I’m very happy with my decision to join her classes.

I am loving being in your class!!! Everyday I’ve been painting for at least 20 minutes!! Fabulous fun!! Thank you!!

After a long break from painting I decided to concentrate on a more realistic style in watercolor and challenged myself to practising every day for a whole year, so when I found Watercolor Mastery I knew this was exactly what I had been looking for. Emily Olson is an amazing artist and teacher with a friendly personality, and I enjoy her structured, calm way of teaching as well as all her tutorials, offering a wide range of subjects for all skill levels. The results are surprisingly good and I can see the progress in my own work after a few months already. Without Watercolor Mastery, I would never have pushed my boundaries on my own to a degree I would never have dreamed of when I started. I am very grateful for this possibility and am looking forward to walking many more brushmiles with Emily Olson!

I haven’t been able to use the app yet.

I will try again today. I am looking forward to it

You do a very good job online. I love your instructions.

I have learned about the importance of practicing my drawing skills of everyday objects, and to draw/paint every day. I particularly enjoy watching you paint animals.
