The Watercolor Bold membership
by Amarilys Henderson of Watercolor Devo
You've got the art in you.
yet wishing you could
stick to your sketchbook?
Tired of poking at progress?
Been there. I knew that I needed to "create a practice" and "uncover my style," like the artists I looked up to.
But I just felt... stuck.
It all changed when I made some key shifts. Those barriers that held me back toppled over--just like the stacks of work I was creating!
I now work as a professional artist. I've enjoyed seeing my work hung and placed on products in stores for 20 years. And as I've grown, I've shared. Having taught over 135K unique artists has prepared me to teach effectively.
I impart this passion to you in Watercolor Bold.

Amanda is a founding member that is still enjoying each new lesson.
Of all the memberships I've tried, Watercolor Bold is by far my favorite. Amarilys makes it known that you can do no wrong with your painting! She breaks technique down into the smallest, delicious bite-sized chunks for you to savor as you learn. I am so happy she has decided to share her gift with us and help us realize ours, too.
these members share how they found the time
You can set a goal for what you want, then do the lessons that help with that rather than working through all of it.
Listening to the lessons like a podcast has helped me apply the principles later.
LEARN THE SKILLS THAT EMPOWER
Skill breeds confidence.
---------- Watch this sampling of lessons ----------
learning is served up twice a month along with exercises and prompts.
I love that the video lessons are short and manageable! I used to avoid using my watercolor paints because I didn't know what to paint, but now I'm happy to play and explore!
Accessible is the word. Amarilys just makes creating art so accessible. Nothing can stop me from picking up a brush!
Fun lessons to implement watercolor techniques that will fill your sketchbook,
not your schedule.

LEAN INTO YOUR UNIQUE VOICE
Creative progress is not a straight line.
We get that.
---------- Watch what "Leaning-In" means ----------
I used to put pressure on myself for perfection with every painting, but now I’m loosening up that pressure and playing. I’ll find my voice and style while playing in Watercolor Bold.
Never go it alone.
Be sharpened and energized by community.
live painting sessions
Experience creative flow alongside others on the regular.
Loose and laid back, this monthly painting face-time is an invigorating boost. Exclusive to members.
"I love the puns. I love the laughter. I love the gift of play you remind us to have in this journey as creatives. And I appreciate and love your openness."
The "live" painting sessions are the highlight for me because of her light-hearted humor and personality.
There's just nothing like painting live.
Worth it on its own.

How much time will I need to set aside?Video lessons within this membership range from 10-30 minutes. Most videos are 15-20 minutes. Set aside 25-minutes 2-3 times a month. "One thing that's been helpful for me I have listened to the lessons in the background like a podcast and it's been super helpful." - Shelley W. On busy months, you can simply schedule the Live Painting Sessions to stay refreshed.
Is it closed captioned?All video lessons and zoom calls will be in English with optional closed captions. The entire course will be searchable--as in no more wondering, "what lesson mentioned x?" You can also speed the player, watch on any device, and view picture in picture.
When are the live calls?Live Painting Sessions are monthly, typically the last Thursday of the month, 7PM CDT. They are a little over an hour with some chatter. Replays are posted and replaced monthly in the hub.
Eek! I'm kind of shy. How big is the group?While its size is changing in real time--this week especially--a very broad guess would be 100-200. Live call show up rate is around 10% of that.
What tech or platforms are used?The hub that contains all the lessons is on Searchie. Live calls are held over Zoom. Community is via Circle.
How long will the content be available?All Video Learning, Lean-In Chats, and PDFs accrue in the Hub and are not removed. Live Replays are replaced month to month.
