Watercolour Projects – 10 ideas for Beginners and School Teachers

We have gathered videos and printable PDFs of some of our favourite watercolour projects. Basic supplies are also linked for sale.

In the first video below the lesson plan is how to paint a fried egg with watercolours. Next up is a demonstration of how to paint a sleeping cat, followed by an exploration on how to paint pears using watercolours. These videos allow beginners to achieve a successful outcome while learning techniques that can be applied to future paintings. Have fun!

Watercolour is made of dry pigment powder dispersed in a water-soluble binder, usually gum arabic. Watercolour’s luminosity results from its transparency and the purity of its pigments. The brightness of the watercolour paper shines through the minutely broken surface of the paint, adding to the impression of light-filled paintings. Get ready to try some new watercolour projects!
