The online watercolor course prepared by our art academy Lineare is the first such course in Poland ... well, we do not want to limit ourselves to the region because due to the nature of the course, both students and master will have access to it from anywhere on Earth. All you need is a smartphone or laptop and internet access. This course is addressed to everyone who is interested in watercolor painting, but for some reason they cannot attend full-time classes. During this course you will be able to learn both the technique and the wide range of possibilities offered by this medium.

Programs and how are courses conducted?

After purchasing the subscription, the participant will get access to the private Facebook group where classes will be held.

Beginner Course (in English or Polish) - for beginners and those who never had contact with watercolor we have prepared a special program entitled Basic Watercolor Course. This course is available for one-time purchase and students will access through the Vimeo platform. The access to the course is permanent. You still will be able to use it after you finish classes. This is a great way to start your adventure with watercolor.
Watch the trailer and full description of the course in this link: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/basicwatercolorcourse

Each lesson of the Basic Watercolor Course is divided into 2 stages.
Stage 1 are working on the basis of pre-recorded lectures, 30 instructional videos divided into 12 chapters (each chapter lasts 45 - 60 minutes). Participants of the course then will publish their class works in a dedicated catalog on our Facebook group.
Stage 2 - at the end of each week, there is a discussion of class works, corrections and consultations (English and Polish). This stage of the lesson takes place in the form of a livestream on our Facebook group.
We recommend systematic implementation of the exercises included in the lectures, preferably 1 chapter per week.

Intermediate / Advanced Course - the program of this online painting workshops are dedicated to participants who have already learned the basics of watercolor. During online classes, students can track the painting process 'step by step' by the teacher and get corrections of their own works. This learning process is no different from the classes we teach in our studio in Warsaw. The online course places great emphasis on the student's independence and inquisitiveness.

Intermediate / Advanced Course are conducted entirely as a livestream. At scheduled times, we all sit down in our homes to paint together. Each participant can publish their works to receive a correction from the master. The video-classes will be also available to watch after the broadcast, so students absent during classes will be able to catch up on a given topic in their own time. Students can publish the final result of their works in a dedicated catalog in order to obtain corrections, which will be carried out during subsequent classes.

Masterclass workshops - specially prepared, advanced training material led by our teachers and invited artists. We recommend these tutorials especially to people who want to understand wider the aspects of watercolor painting and look at the subject from the perspective of various artists.
