This Watercolor for Kids class is perfect for summer vacation with your kids. Read on for why we love it + get $5 off.
My big kids’ last day of school is this week Thursday. This year they will only be doing three weeks of camp and the other weeks they are going to be home with Matthew. We want them to have a summer of exploring outside, imagining, reading and creating.
I have been looking for cost-effective ways to engage them throughout the summer and last week I discovered a real winner.
Emily Lex just launched an absolutely fantastic Watercolor for Kids online class. Emily is a brilliant watercolorist whose work has done art for Joanna Gaines, the Gates family and more. My almost eight-year-old Adeline loves it. If you want a cheap way to inspire your kids all summer long, I cannot recommend this class enough. Here’s why this class is excellent and you should sign your child up:
AFFORDABLE: Watercolor for Kids is affordably priced at just $29.95, but with my exclusive affiliate coupon JESSICA5 you will get $5 off, making it $24.95. This is less than the price of take- out pizza for dinner or a night at the movies, and your children will enjoy it all summer long.
MULTI-USE: Seriously, Adeline just started the class last week and has painted every day since getting it. This isn’t like those one-time use subscription boxes. Your child is going to want to paint all summer long.
CONNECTION: Many of the days, Adeline and I have painted together, to the point where the class has felt like it is as much for me as for her. She has said that painting with me has become her favorite part of the day. I will be forever grateful for the way this simple online class has given me a gift of quality time with my daughter.
CREATIVE: Creative exploration is so important for our kids and Watercolor for Kids beautifully inspires creativity. While the lessons are guided, there is much room for your child’s creativity to flourish. I have loved seeing how Adeline’s creativity has made every project her own.
BEGINNER FRIENDLY: The course goes over all the basics of using watercolors, how to mix colors, color theory and has very simple projects. It is perfect for a young artist and/or someone who has little experience with watercolors.
MINIMAL SUPPLIES: Unlike some art classes that I have done online, this class requires very little – just watercolor paint, watercolor paper, a few brushes, a pencil and a thin sharpie. We actually had all of it at home, which was a blessing. If you don’t though, the products are super cheap on Amazon or a local craft store.
FUN: Painting with watercolors is fun and easy, and Emily's projects are especially fun for kids, making it even more perfect for summer vacation. From sunbursts to ice cream cones, the projects are delightful. Adeline has loved the lessons so much that she said she wants to do watercolors with her friends at her birthday party this summer!
Watercolor for Kids includes eight video lessons, a supply list and a bonus book of 20 additional watercolor templates. Emily also offers a 30-day money back guarantee if you don’t love the course, which I really appreciate.
