2018 Watercolor Desk Calendar

Paint your way towards 2018 in this fun workshop where you'll create a beautiful desk sized calendar filled with layered washes of watercolor and modern designs.  

You'll learn to paint abstract images with colors reminiscent of the seasons and their changes throughout the year, have fun with repeating patterns and bursts of bright colors, or perhaps sketch simple illustrations of in-season botanicals!  Experiment with layering, blooming, blending, splattering, and lifting colors. Have fun and move on to the next month with the flexible and forgiving medium of watercolor. 

All that’s left when you’ve painted your way through the year is to decide on a way to display it!  Punch holes in the tops and bind with a piece of leather, string, or wire, or place them on a lovely clipboard that can hang on the wall. And then you have an easy personalized holiday or birthday gift throughout the year!

  • 2018 Calendar template printed on mid-weight fine art watercolor paper 
  • Various optional materials for binding your calendar: wire, twine, suede
  • 36 pan watercolor set + watercolor brush - yours to keep!
