Gorgeous Watercolor Classes for The Whole Family

I am so excited about these Emily Lex Watercolor classes and workbooks for Sweet Lou and I to do over the summer. As we are wrapping up school I have been brain storming fun ideas to keep us occupied over the summer, and this is at the TOP of the list.

We have the "flowers" and "animals" workbooks, which are not only filled with Emily Lex's gorgeous art, but step by step instructions on how to do each painting on the outlined drawing provided on the next page. There are several (thick) blank pages to keep practicing after each flower or animal. Sweet Lou especially loves the animal book workbook: this "cat friends" page is what she is most excited to start with.

The workbooks are so much fun on their own, but Emily Lex Studio also offers online watercolor classes that are amazing. We did the "Watercolor for Kids" class (and I have the "Simplified Watercolor" and "Simplified Penmanship" as well). I love that Lex starts at the very basics, including supplies, technique, mixing colors etc.,and builds from there. The classes are engaging and easy to follow along with, and have the added fun of extra bonus activities at the end. You have your own login, so can do the classes at your own pace.

Another favorite from the Emily Lex Studio Shop: the "Truth for Today" Scripture cards. Combined with the brass card holder or the gold card stand, these cards are such a beautiful way to display scripture. The kids version of the cards are sitting in my daughter's room where she can see them everyday, and it is a fun and simple way to memorize scripture with her.

I think the simplicity of adding beauty to everyday life through Emily Lex's products is what draws me to them the most. She has found a way to share her talent with others, and we all get to share in the beauty. We will so enjoy doing these over the summer, and the workbooks and scripture cards will always be treasured.
