Casual Creativity: Watercolor Basics

Graphic designers work on their computers… a lot. It feels like sometimes they never get to use their hands. Also, some creatives are the only person on their “team” at work or they freelance in a solo space. That can get lonely.

The goal of Casual Creativity nights is to let creatives work with their hands, learn new skills, make silly things with no regard to briefs or clients, to create things they can hold and things that make them happy.

Now, it’s possible to do all of those things on your own or even with friends. Casual Creativity is a concerted effort to make that space for creatives to make stuff together in a casual way that leads to new conversations and new friendships.


This month we will be learning the basics of watercolor.

Techniques we will cover:

  • Wet-on-wet
  • Wet-on-dry
  • Building up color
  • Creating gradients
  • Precision (painting around shapes)

You won't be a master watercolor painter by the end, but hopefully, you'll learn some techniques to help you get closer to mastery!

All skill levels welcome. Come paint with us. There will be pizza. If you've got your own supplies, bring 'em!
