Shayda Campbell’s Joyful Watercolor Workshop is now open and it’s completely FREE to watch and paint along! Shayda is a Canadian artist and YouTube content creator. Her channel is a calm, inspirational space where you can approach the basics of watercolor painting, illustration, journaling, and more! She aims to take the fear out of the artistic process and encourage adults toward a casual, daily art practice. ‘Because creativity is play, anyone can do it!’ She’s teaching us her best watercolor tips in this four-video series.
In this workshop, you’ll fill a watercolor sketchbook with playful illustrations, beautiful floral compositions, watercolor techniques, and finished pieces. Shayda will help you feel confident, calm, and creative in your art-making journey.
As the foundation of your artwork, paper is the natural place to start and plays a huge role in the success of your artwork. Always choose a quality paper that allows multiple layers and reworking. In this workshop series we will be working with the following papers:
- Paper Towel
- 2 jars of water
- Masking or washi tape
