What students are saying...

Heather R., Surrey, Canada

"I wanted to improve my watercolour techniques and this course helped immensely. The videos are like having a series of private painting classes with Jess guiding me. The best part is that I get to keep all the lessons, tips and bonuses to use in the future. I highly recommend this course."

Lyse C., White Rock, Canada

"Jess Rice commands his art and loose style with conviction! He kindly reminds us to 'let go,' 'have fun,' 'one stroke, rinse your brush and feather,' — which I find soothing and inspirational."
