7 Facebook groups for aspiring watercolor artists

August 9, 2018

 

There are a lot of groups on Facebook about watercolors and it's easy to get lost if you try to search around. I did the hard work for you and found 7 groups that are super active, inspiring and great for aspiring Watercolor artists.

 

Often you have to answer a couple of questions from the group host before you can join the group. That way he or she can see if you would make a good fit (and check that you are not some kind of robot). 

 

 

Watercolor beginners and enthusiasts

If you only want to join one group, this should definitely be it. The members are a good mix of beginners and experienced artists and the group is great at giving each other positive feedback and answering all sorts of questions about techniques, materials and even about marketing, printing and selling art.

This group is different than the others above. This is a group where Skillshare teachers post free links to their classes. There are a lot of great classes on watercolor so it's a nice way to give it a try.

 

I teach watercolor on Skillshare too and if you use this link, you get two FREE months of premium membership. You can see my classes here.

 

 

There are of course a ton of other Facebookgroups out there both on this topic, other artforms and the whole business part of being an artist. But we all have to start somewhere, and why not by learning from each other right?
