“I am thrilled to get these tutorials. I have wished for this kind of instruction in watercolor and block crayon drawing for years; in fact, not having this skill is what stopped our Waldorf-inspired homeschooling!” – Gretchen Sparkman

Watercolor Foundations: Part One

This video, exclusive to Earthschooling, was created by Waldorf teacher Rick Tan and takes you through all the foundations in wet-on-wet watercolor painting. This is the first video in our three-part “Watercolor Foundations” series but is also a stand-alone tutorial.

The video, Waldorf Wet-on-Wet Watercolor Foundations: Part One shows the teacher how to work with one color, how to work with two colors that do not combine and how to work with many colors than combine together. Using the techniques in the video and the two accompanying documents (one guide and one supplement by Rick Tan) you can create more than 23 lessons to use as you introduce wet-on-wet watercolor painting to your classes.

These techniques are suitable for a teacher who needs to learn wet-on-wet watercolor painting (we recommend you start with part one and work your way through all the foundation videos), or to teach students who are in kindergarten, first or second grade. These lessons are also suitable for a student of any age if they are being introduced to wet-on-wet watercolor for the first time.

Watercolor Foundations: Part Two

This video, exclusive to Earthschooling, was created by Waldorf teacher Rick Tan and takes you through all the foundations in wet-on-wet watercolor painting. This is the second video in our three-part “Watercolor Foundations” series but is also a stand-alone tutorial.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be preparing for watercolor lessons with your student(s) while also relaxing, meditating and doing your own inner work? This is what the Rick Tan’s landscape watercolor video will do for the teacher/parent.

You will be amazed when you see what Rick Tan teaches you to do with just the color blue. You will then advance from one-color landscapes to multi-color landscapes and scenes. After watching the tutorial you will be able to become “friends with water” and be able to create amazing landscapes with your student(s).

The techniques are not all you will learn. Watching him create the paintings from beginning to end is so much better than someone telling you theory or showing you a picture. With each stroke of the brush you watch you are learning more.

“Wet on wet watercolor is a way of seeing yourself and this can be a powerful tool for change” – Rick Tan

The video, Waldorf Wet-on-Wet Watercolor Foundations: Part Two shows the teacher how to create forms and content by painting scenes from nature. You will explore the sky, sea, land and foliage. You will no longer be painting free form or random shapes. This video tutorial advances you and your students to reproducing actual scenes from nature or creating your own nature scenes from your imagination.

These techniques are suitable for a teacher who needs to learn wet-on-wet watercolor painting (If you are a beginner with wet-on-wet watercolor painting you may want to watch Wet-on-Wet Watercolor Foundations: Part One where we explored character and color.), or to teach students who are in first through 9th grade.

Watercolor Foundations: Part Three

This video, exclusive to Earthschooling, was created by Waldorf teacher Rick Tan and takes you through all the foundations in wet-on-wet watercolor painting. This is the third video in our three-part “Watercolor Foundations” series but is also a stand-alone tutorial.

In this video tutorial we will continue to build on what we learned in parts one or two (or the foundations you already have in wet-on-wet watercolor techniques – part one and two are not required before you use this video as long as you already have a basic foundation in watercolor). The past techniques we learned included lifting off, painting in, use of different widths and edges of the brush, modulation of pigments from rich to diluted, and the use of perspective with a background, middle ground and foreground.

These techniques are demonstrated again as you watch the video and learn to create three different kinds of paintings – an ‘animal/underwater’ scene, an ‘historic landscape’ scene, and a ‘landscape with person’ painting. However, during this episode the speaking focus is on the five basics of wet-on-wet watercolor painting: control, content, color, character, and communion. Landscape is no longer the main subject but the frame for our main subject.

The video, Waldorf Wet-on-Wet Watercolor Foundations: Part Three introduces three amazing paintings to the teacher/student including “Underwater Turtles”, “Stonehenge on the Hill” and “Horseman on the Mountain by the River”. The techniques you learn creating these paintings can be used to create hundreds of additional paintings for different lessons in your classroom.

How and where you use these painting lessons is only limited by your imagination. We provide you with many ideas for students in first grade through high school.

“Through the idea that the medium of wet-on-wet watercolor is a communion – a synergistic relationship between us and our world – we develop a sense of purpose. We engage with the world and see the beauty and wonder that is there. We strive to do good in the world with pure and loving intent” – Rick Tan
