Watercolor Misfit’s Beginner’s Workshop + Community Access


“Took a two week watercolor course at my local art museum. I found myself confused and frustrated after the first day. Watched your videos and applied what I learned from you to the class. At the end of the two weeks, the teacher was astounded at my progress. Funny thing is I learned it all from you. lol. Thanks @watercolorMSfit” – Lauren

Not Your Average Watercolor Workshop…

Let’s me ask you something, and don’t worry the answer can stay between us. Have you ever signed up for a watercolor beginners course – only to find yourself even more confused after the course than when you first signed up? Well, know that you are not alone. When I was first starting watercolor – I wasn’t so lucky with teachers. Most of them would just sit behind a desk and simply tell me to “feel” the paint. But my question was what did that mean anyway? Well, in this course, I will be giving you a glimpse as to what “feel the paint” actually means and how to take some of the basic exercises of watercolor and apply them in a completely illustrated fox.


Sneak Peek of What’s Inside

Like I said earlier, this isn’t your average watercolor course – where you sit and watch the artist paint with little instruction and vague details. These styles of classes frustrated me to no end – leaving me discouraged and with little empowerment to actually paint. This is why, in my course, I will be walking you through what supplies you actually need, how to set up your watercolor palette, how to mix your paints, how to create smooth gradients with your paints, and finally how to apply all these skills into your very own watercolor fox.



I also wanted to give everyone the opportunity to learn watercolor! This is why I’ve included multiple templates including the fox which are easy to trace and take the stress of drawing off your mind. I mean we all know, the drawing is the most important part of a watercolor painting. This means you’ve already got the hardest part of this illustration done!


No worries, just think of this course as a review course for the basics. Remember you can always learn something new as long as you have an open mind about it.


I’ve also included a packet of worksheets & Informational charts to help you follow along with me during the workshop. I created these to make learning as easy and simple as possible all while having fun!


  • No worries, again! This course is set up for you to discover and learn with whatever paints you have. However, that being said – it will be easier for you to paint the fox WITH TUBE PAINTS RATHER THAN PANS. Although other students have taken the course with pan watercolor sets and done quite well, it is easier to follow along with tube paints.
  • THE COLORS I will be using are cadmium red, cadmium orange, lemon yellow, burnt sienna, and winsor blue (green shade) (but you can substitute a cobalt blue or any blue of your choice). In the course, I will guide you as to what colors work best together and how to blend these colors to create your fox.


Note: We have tried to stick with the most basic supplies to lower your costs especially if you are on a limited budget. However, that said we highly recommend tube paints over pan paints as your results will look much better.

Your Instructor

Carrie Luc

Hi there! My name is Carrie – the artist behind Watercolor Misfit. Perhaps you have heard of me from my YouTube channel, which I started shortly after getting married to my best friend in the entire world in 2012. Since then ALOT has changed and this little hobby has turned into my dream job! Currently, I teach watercolor courses online to my loyal fans – called Misfitians. It’s hard to believe now, but this all started when I was in college pursuing my Masters Degree of Education. As most know, being a college student means one is constantly broke. So to earn extra money on the side – I taught art workshops to my students for over 10 years. What’s even crazier, is that nearly half of those students went on to win numerous art competitions after training under my supervision. Also to help pay the bills, I painted numerous commissioned portraits and illustrations thinking this was just a profitable side job for the time being.At the time, I honestly didn’t give it much thought, but now I realize that teaching art was what I was born to do. Although I took several college art classes and nearly graduated with an art minor – I decided to not pursue it in the end. You see, many of my art teachers simply didn’t have the desire to teach. In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me if they hated it. This is why I consider myself a self taught artist – simply because I did try to pursue higher art education but was frustrated by the lack of teaching given me while there. So, I graduated with a Masters Degree of Education without the art minor. Although, at the time it seemed like I was taking a step back from art – nothing couldn’t be further from the truth. With a Masters Degree of Education in hand, I learned how to create courses from scratch and developable achievable goals for my students to find success. This coupled with my own personal experiences in watercolor – and my filming background are sure to please in a easy to follow in a visually stimulating manner. With the help of my wonderful husband and Misfit Dream Team – Watercolor Misfit is growing faster than I could even dream and I can’t wait to share this experience with you.
