What is World Watercolor Month?
World Watercolor Month is A Charitable Event to Support and Encourage Arts Education. It’s a month-long event designed to inspire people to paint with watercolor (watercolor, aquarelle) while raising awareness on the importance of art and creativity in the world. Anyone is able to join the celebration from master watercolorists to artists just starting out with watercolor! Simply tag any art that uses watercolors (or gouache) with #WorldWatercolorMonth during the month of July! Try the ultimate challenge of 31 watercolors in 31 days, or simply post when you can! The goal is about maintaining regular art practice, improving skills, and having fun!
And, best of all, you’ll be part of a combined initiative, raising awareness for art education and helping nurture art and creativity in children across the globe via the International Child Art Foundation!
How to join:
1. Create a watercolor painting or sketch
2. Share your work online for others around the world to enjoy
