Have you always wanted to capture the wonder of the universe through art but are unsure where to start? Join Kolbie Blume, founder of Writing Desk Creative Co., at The Lemon Collective DC for an inspirational and educational night of exploring the basics of watercolor celestials, where she’ll teach you everything you need to know to create simple but stunning pieces.

During this three-hour workshop, you will learn tips, tricks, and proven techniques for creating dazzling galaxies, nebulas, and moonscapes, as seen on Kolbie’s Instagram and Etsy shop, This Writing Desk. By the end of the class, you’ll walk away with two giftable 5x7 universe watercolor designs and the knowledge and confidence you’ll need to keep creating and developing your own style for years to come.

In addition to hands-on, personalized instruction from Kolbie, your investment includes:

  • two professional paint brushes

  • a travel palette with artist-grade watercolor paint perfect for cosmic paintings

  • watercolor paper to use during the session as well as some extra to take home

  • a copy of Kolbie's (new!) cosmic watercolor workbook

  • a complete list of Kolbie’s favorite supplies and resources to continue your watercolor journey

No experience necessary to take this class. Whether you’ve never put brush to paper before or you’re looking to add some new techniques to your repertoire, this class is for you!
