EXCITING NEWS: World Watercolor Month™ Returns in July!

World Watercolor Month Returns in July 2017 #WorldWatercolorGroup #WorldWatercolorMonth

I‘m thrilled to announce the triumphant return of the biggest watercolor celebration on the planet! Mark your calendars now, and please share this and help spread the word! World Watercolor Month 2017 is back, better than ever, and will begin in just a little more than 4 weeks! Can you make 31 watercolors in 31 days? Of course you can!! And the month of July provides the perfect opportunity to give it a go. (The image I used for this post was my own suitably celebratory Day 31 image from last year’s challenge!)

As many of you know, this event is also about giving back and helping young underprivileged artists get the art supplies they need. I’m so happy to partner with The Dreaming Zebra Foundation and help raise awareness for this wonderful cause that helps future artists grow and thrive. From gently used art supplies to monetary donations, every little bit helps, so I truly hope you’ll consider donating to the cause!

And what could possibly make the month even cooler? Well, partnering up with your favorite art brands to offer you even more amazing things during the month! Look for fabulous content on painting with watercolor, glorious giveaways, and exclusive deals. I’m so thrilled to partner with this year’s World Watercolor Month Sponsors.

A special shout-out to our friends at Hahnemühle who already donated over $1,000 in watercolor paper to Dreaming Zebra! And a huge, heartfelt thanks to all of the sponsors who helped me cover the costs for running the event this year. It really means a lot to have your support. And, best of all, with your help, I’ll once again be able to donate 100% of proceeds from the snazzy new World Watercolor Month Souvenirs to Dreaming Zebra as well! (These will be available as a limited edition only during the month of July… I haven’t designed them yet, but now that I’ve said they’ll be snazzy, I’ve sort of set the bar rather high, so yeah, they’ll be super cool!)

And a huge thanks to Philippe who created the new 2017 trailer for the event (it’s even got confetti!! hehe… so fun!) Definitely take a moment and check it out below:

Finally, a gigantic thanks to all of the artists who participate each year. Your energy, enthusiasm, and beautiful art, make the world a better place. Together, we can make a difference and paint the world with watercolor in July! And, by the way, I’m telling you early so you can justify getting that hip new sketchbook you’ve been eyeing. You know the one. Just go for it! It’s going to be the best month ever!! For all the info and updates, be sure to bookmark the page at: worldwatercolor.com.

Much love to you all,

      Thanks so much, Suzala! 😃💕 Yeah, this year is going to be great!! I paint every day as it is, but there’s just something magical when thousands of artists do it as well! And yes to donating for our future artists! Doing all of this has gotten much more expensive, so I’m thrilled my sponsors have joined ing so that all of the proceeds go back to awesome cause!! Yay!
