Welcome 2023 Summer Creative Retreat Attendees

your watercolor journey starts here

Welcome to the Foxsy Watercolor Academy! You’re standing at the beginning of a transformative 12-week journey that will push your limits, challenge your skills, and open your artistic world.

There are four sections to the Watercolor Academy, with each section lasting for three weeks. Below you will find all the courses and resources you need to succeed during your time in the Academy, but feel free to reach out if you have any questions along the way.

Each section has a section overview video. Watch it first to get an idea of what to expect — and what is expected of you. Remember, the guided curriculum is just a suggested framework to keep you reaching new heights, but you don’t have to follow along if you don’t want to! There is no grade you must achieve and no detention if you don’t turn in your work.

You are the main character here. Foxsy is just your humble guide.

Final project

It’s been three months since you began the Foxsy Watercolor Academy, and you’ve accomplished a lot. You should be proud of yourself — just getting here is a major achievement. But there is one final challenge for you, if you dare take it on.

For your final project for the Watercolor Academy, you have one objective: create one painting from scratch using the fabulous new skills you’ve learned.

This painting can be as big or small as you like, and of any subject that interests you.

If you need some help coming up with ideas, try the Roll for Inspiration course!

Once you have completed your painting, snap a photo of it in good lighting and submit it!

For bonus points, submit the photo you took of your first project so we can see your growth as an artist!

Common Questions

You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.

A little bit of both! The classes are all pre-recorded, so you can watch them whenever you want.

However, the 12-week curriculum guides you through the courses you need to become proficient at watercolors.

You don’t need to stick to the 12-week schedule if that doesn’t suit you, but it’s there if you prefer a more structured approach. You get to decide what path is right for you!

Every section of the Academy lasts three weeks. For the initial run of the Academy, starting on April 1st, there will be a live event at the end of each section, where we’ll review the coursework that you just completed.

After these live events pass, a link to a replay of the event will be added to allow you to watch. Additionally, you’ll still be able to join Foxsy’s other live classes and submit questions via email.

This is a great opportunity to share your challenges, victories, and questions with your fellow Academy students and the instructor hosting the check-in.

Practically, you’ll receive notice of the scheduled live events in advance and receive a link to the event page so all you need to do is show up!

Yes indeed! If you decide the Watercolor Academy doesn’t fit your needs, then you can take advantage of our 30-day money-back guarantee.

Just cancel your membership from your student dashboard and contact us at [email protected] for your refund.

If you don’t want to deal with paying a monthly or annual membership, you can choose a Lifetime Membership for a simple one-time upfront fee.

Once you’re a Lifetime Member, you have guaranteed access to everything Foxsy offers now and forever. That means all future courses, Academies, live classes — everything. The Lifetime Membership is your golden ticket to unlimited creative growth, and you’ll always have a seat at the Foxsy table.

Once you enroll in Foxsy, you lock in your membership rate. What does that mean?

That means your rate stays the same no matter how Foxsy’s rates might change. If prices go up, you still pay the same rate you signed up with.

If you cancel your membership and re-enroll at another time, you lose access to your original rate and must enroll with the current price.

You will need a basic set of watercolor paints, watercolor paper, paint brushes, and a few other miscellaneous items like jars and rags.

Don’t worry — we’ll cover materials first thing in Section 1 so you can figure out the specifics before you dive into the rest of the Academy.

At Foxsy, we want to see you grow beyond your wildest dreams, and we believe that human-to-human connection is a staple to making this happen.

After you complete a class project, you’ll have the opportunity to submit photos of your work through the course interface, along with any thoughts or questions you might have.

From there, a Foxsy team member will take a look and write back with words of encouragement, pointers, and further suggestions to help you continue along your journey.

We want to help you along every step of the way, which is why we offer unlimited creative support.

If you’re ever stuck or need help on your journey, our team of creative pros are available to answer any questions you may have, either via email or through the Academy live check-ins and Q&As.

You can cancel your membership at any time for any reason. However, canceling your membership will mean you lose access to all the Foxsy resources at the end of your billing period. And if you cancel your membership, you will lose whatever rate you locked in when you first enrolled.

For example, if you enrolled during the Early Adopter period, you locked in your discounted rate. If you were to cancel and try to re-enroll later, you would not have access to the Early Adopter rates any longer.

At this time, the Watercolor Academy is the only Academy available. However, we are hard at work building new Academies to launch in 2023 — namely the Hand Lettering Academy and the Creative Journaling Academy.

All Foxsy students will continue to gain access to more amazing resources as they are released without paying an extra cent.
