Make a Watercolor Watch


Whether you’re taking Draw It Like It’s Hot, Expressing, or Beginning, we know you’ll be having fun with watercolors and drawing outside. And Sketchbook Skool co-founder Koosje Koene has the perfect new art tool for you: a do-it-yourself watercolor watch.

It’s simple and quick, so you’ll have it in time for your new online art klass. Enroll here so you don’t miss out!
