Let your colors flow!

“Life inspires art. And sometimes, art inspires life." – Cindy Briggs

Everyone has a gift for creativity within them. After all, art is another expression of ideas and emotions, of the world we live in, of our lives as we evolve through experiences. I’m sharing a way that you can fill the pages of your life with your own flowing colors.

In my Quick Sketch Watercolors Online Painting Workshop, I will show you how to unlock your creativity and talent for art. You’ll have a channel for expressing yourself and how you see and feel about your world.

You’ll have a unique way of capturing and storing your memories of your travels and your daily life. You can even use your new found knowledge to create thoughtful and inspiring journals, gifts, and framable cards.

My workshop is open to everyone. It doesn’t matter whether you’ve never held a paint brush before or you simply want to hone what skills you already have.

You’ll have access to easy-to-follow videos, webinars, masterclass demos, tutorials, and resources for getting you started and improving your watercolor paintings.

It’s all about letting your colors flow.

Before we get any further, let me just clarify one thing....

My Quick Sketch Watercolors program isn’t simply a paint-by-the-numbers online workshop.

I teach you how to think through a painting, how to see like an artist—and simplify the process. Sure, I’ll be sharing tips and techniques with you, but most of all, my lessons will enable you to create watercolor sketches in your own unique style. And, my positive, uplifting approach will help you from start to finish.

Beyond tips and techniques, what I’m aiming for is to help you find your inspiration.

Inspiration is what breathes life into art. It’s what makes painting with watercolors a truly joyful experience. It’s all about letting your colors flow, and this online workshop will show you how!

Why discover how to paint watercolors with me?

Who is Cindy Briggs and why would I want to learn watercolor painting from her?” That’s probably the question you’ve got in mind at this point.

To answer that question,... I am excited about teaching, and I love to help my students discover the joy of painting. I am:

✓ A master of translucent watercolors that are serene and filled with light. I’m known for my sun-drenched landscapes, luminous flowers, and striking portraits,

✓ An internationally recognized artist whose work has been displayed in several galleries across the US and in publications like Watercolor Magazine, Outdoor Painting, and Plein Air Magazine,

✓ A Daniel Smith showcased artist who has worked with Daniel Smith stores teaching workshops, conducting demonstrations, and creating videos,

✓ A featured instructor at many art centers, schools, and events, and

✓ A co-owner of Make Every Day A Painting Workshops with Theresa Goesling, teaching workshops internationally for 20 years.

Additionally, I served as an artist-in-residence at L’Isle sur la Sorgue in Provence, France. My work has been juried in several regional and international exhibitions, and I have also sat as juror in many such events. I conduct regular workshops at the University of Utah, Kimball Art Center in Park City, Utah, and The Art Station in Bend, Oregon. I’ve also spent 15 years working with National Advertising Agencies in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle.


"Cindy's modules provide a wide range of themes. Her demos have numerous hints on techniques she uses to enhance her paintings."

"The sharing that we do on the Facebook page (with comments from Cindy) helps to create a community of painters all providing support and positive feedback."

“Cindy Briggs’ Quick Sketch Watercolors has brought me back to painting after a three-year break."

“Cindy Briggs’ online Quick Sketch Watercolor class has been so inspiring! I’ve signed up for online art classes before and have never even finished the first lessons, but this was different."

"Cindy started with some easy instructions and simple subjects to get us warmed up, then branched out to include a variety of subjects and multiple levels of challenge. Her style really helped me loosen up and build the confidence I needed to branch out on my own too."

"The closed Facebook group gave us a safe place to post our work to receive comments and encouragement from our classmates and Cindy."

"Although I couldn’t attend all of the live lessons, I did make it for a few minutes. Cindy taped it so we could access it any time and that’s the great news because it was packed with useful tips!"

"I’ve loved every minute of the class and expect to return to the lessons multiple times to sharpen my skills. This was just what I needed to help me move from rank beginner, self-taught, wanna-be, to a budding watercolorist, excited to keep on learning and growing!” — Jane T.
