This course will allow you to invest in yourself by relaxing, having fun, and learning beginning watercolor from a professional artist in your own time, space, and at your own pace.

Even though you take this course in your own time - EACH MONTH you can partake in a one-hour live online session to get your questions answered by the instructor!

Let the water do the magic!

Have you ever attempted watercolor painting and thought it was difficult? It truly is not - you can do this! You just have to know how to start and a little about what to expect. 

Don't forget...

EACH MONTH you'll be able to ask questions in LIVE ZOOM session with Mary, the instructor!

Hi, I'm Mary!

I’m an artist and art coach with an MFA and 20+ years of teaching experience. 
My specialty is helping people who have set aside their childhood dreams for adult realities and want to try making art again to become amazing artists.
Don't take it from me, take it from these artists who have worked with me! I create online communities where people can bring back the part of themselves that they have tamped down and pursue the dreams they forgot they had.

I've curated and juried a number of exhibitions throughout the Midwestern United States, including Women's Works, Art Fair at the Dole, The Sage Gallery, Wausau Festival of Arts, NISRA, and in my studio. 
I have an extensive exhibition history throughout the United States. In 2017 I won the international exhibit Women's Works Artistic Merit award. ​

What to Expect

This course will teach you all the basics you need to know about painting nature in watercolor if you are a beginning creator - even if you have never felt like an artist.

Here's what you get… 

A one-hour Zoom class, once a month for a year, to get your watercolor questions answered by Mary.

4+ hours of instructional videos and bonus videos. These step-by-step videos each have a different goal for you to achieve.

The videos are designed to be watched in sequential order, and I recommend you watch each video once through right before you begin painting along.

You will learn the very basics, like what kind of paper, paint, and brushes to use and why.

You will also receive a supply PDF for quick reference.

Instructional PDF's.

You also get added to the Unwind with Art Facebook group where you can post your art within a very supportive and fun group of people interested in painting watercolor or making other types of art!

Here's the thing… once you buy the course, it's yours!

You don't need to complete it in a certain amount of time. You can watch and follow along with one video a day or a week or whenever you want. 

Invest in Yourself. Scientific studies have shown there is a connection between making art and reducing stress in your mind and body. 

Making art doesn't only make you feel better, it also creates tangible, physical changes in your body and brain.

This course is for you if you...

If you’ve never felt like an artist, but wish you could change that.

Have never tried watercolor painting.

Want to relax, unwind, and have fun with watercolors.

Have tried painting with watercolors, but don’t feel much confidence, yet.

Feel stuck, need inspiration, and are curious about how to paint beautiful nature.

Want to learn some quick watercolor tips and techniques.

Want both ‘outside of the box’ and traditional ways to use watercolors.

This course is not for you if you…

Are a professional watercolor painter.

Are a traditional watercolorist and only want to achieve a traditional look to your work and use very established techniques.

"I thoroughly enjoyed watching and painting along with this beginning nature course. One of the bonus videos was created in plein air. This delightfully breezy, fun video reminded me of the ambient effects of the lakeside conditions on different days. I heartily recommend this course! I'm looking forward to Mary's online pastel course that I hope is coming out soon!" - Emily

​"If you don't already love painting you will after taking Mary's class. Mary easily explains her approach to the subject work while educating us on the use of the medium. Everyone's style is different and Mary celebrates the uniqueness of each artist and their paintings." - Ally

​"Mary is an amazing art teacher and person. I knew absolutely nothing about “making art”, in fact, I had convinced myself since childhood that I wasn’t artistic. 

During a challenging time in my life, I decided to take her class and in a very short time was amazed that I really could do it!! Working with watercolors soon became my favorite medium. 

I would have never succeeded without Mary’s guidance, skill and knowledge…she’s the best and I highly recommend her to anyone and everyone!!!" - Bill
