Questions & answers

You set up a subscription when you sign up for any of my paid plans. This means that it will auto-renew on a monthly (every 30 days), bi-annually (every 180 days), or yearly (every 365 days) basis. You can cancel your subscription at any time. When you cancel your subscription, you will still have access to the content of the school until the end of your subscription cycle. For example, you sign up for the yearly membership on March 15, 2020, you cancel your subscription on November 5, 2020 – you still have access to the content until March 14, 2021. You won’t be charged anymore on March 15, 2021.

20% off renewals

The first payment for the 6-monthly and yearly membership is at the standard price ($80 and $150 accordingly). The second and following payments will be at the discounted price ($64 or $120 depending on the level) as long as your subscription is active all the time and uninterrupted. For example, you sign up for 6-monthly membership on March 15, 2020. Your first payment on March 15, 2020, is $80. Your second payment on September 15, 2020, is $64, your third payment on March 15, 2021, is $64, and so on. Let’s say you cancel your subscription at any point and you want to come back later. This will start a new subscription plan for you, so your first payment will be at the standard price, and the following fees will be discounted.

It counts from the date of the payment. The cycle periods are as follows:

  • a monthly subscription renews every 30 days;
  • a 6-monthly subscription renews every 180 days;
  • a yearly subscription renews every 365 days.

Of course, you can cancel your subscription anytime before it renews.

After logging in, you will be automatically taken to the main school page.

If you would like to change your membership plan, follow these simple instructions. These instructions also apply if you are interested in downgrading your membership level.

  1. Log in to your membership account.
  2. From your My Account page, click the “Change” (Membership Plan) link.
  3. The following screen will show you an overview of available membership levels.

No, the videos are streamed, but so long as you have a high-speed internet connection and are a member of the School, you can watch them as many times as you like.

So long as you are a School member, you can access all School content.

You can complete the tutorials at your own pace. There are no deadlines and you don’t have to hurry. As long as you are a School member, you have access to all tutorials, so take your time and enjoy the process. There is no particular plan, each tutorial is an independent project.

Although I try to explain every step precisely, you should have some basic knowledge about watercolors. I would like to push your boundries a bit and encourage you to try something more challenging. There are hundreds of free watercolor tutorials on YouTube and usually they are for beginners, so there’s a lot to choose from. In my school we will go a step further. This doesn’t mean it’s not a place for beginners! There are beginners in my school who successfully finished complex (in my opinion) tutorials. This is why I don’t really like to divide tutorials into any levels, because we perceive the dificulty level in very different ways.

As long as the time allows me I always try to comment and answer all your questions. However, I can’t guarantee that I will always give you a feedback and answer quickly. I work on my own, so sometimes it can be difficult and just physically impossible, especially with the growing number of new members. You can always email me, use our Facebook Group or Forum to find support in our lovely community or you can also chat with me on the live chat on my website.

You are free to cancel your membership at any time. When you log in to my website you will see a little bit different menu. One of the items in the menu will be “My Account” where you will find the details of your membership. You will also find an option to cancel or change your membership on that page. Once you have canceled your subscription, you will be able to access your data and account until the end of your billing cycle. After that date, your subscription will no longer be active and access to your account be restricted.

It depends on the particular tutorial and the difficulty. The length is between 40 minutes to 7 hours. I try to show you every step of the painting, that’s why some of them are very long. You can always speed up the videos. Some parts of the videos are speeded up if I paint something repeatedly.

Yes, almost all of my tutorials have my voiceover. There are also some old videos in my school which I recorded long time ago. At that time I didn’t intend to make tutorials and these videos don’t have voiceovers (some of them have subtitles). I thought that it would be a loss if I deleted them, so I decided to leave them for you. You can treat them as demonstrations to watch and relax.

Of course! However, I encourage you to familiarize yourself with the Terms and Conditions, especially a section “Avoiding Copyright Infringement”. In short – when you want to publish your painting somewhere online it would be very nice if you mention that your painting is based on my tutorial.

I accept credit and debit card payments (securely processed by Stripe) and PayPal.

Yes. All prices on my website (for membership plans and in my shop) are in U.S. dollars.

What the members say

When I was searching for an on-line watercolor school, it was Chris’s subject matter, vivid colors, and composition that caught my attention.  A few weeks later, I discovered so much more. The tutorials give not only detailed, step-by-step videos, but throughout  Chris gives commentary about why he is doing something and tips he’s learned along the way; priceless wisdom and experience!  Chris eagerly shares all he knows to help make his students successful, a truly skilled teacher.

The lesson on color theory was so comprehensive, yet easy to understand, that it taught me things that up until now I found difficult to comprehend. The techniques Chris shared for enlarging and transferring an image have been invaluable to me, reducing both my time and effort. Best yet, as he continues to learn new things, Chris shares with this students, students share with each other, and the forums become a fresh wealth of information.

Finally, Chris is impressively responsive to live chat, emails, and forum discussions. I especially appreciate his critique of my paintings. He is always able to spot that which I could not and offer insightful suggestions for improvement, all while giving encouragement and consideration to individual style. I feel like I stuck gold the day I decided to join this watercolor school. I’ve learned so much, have so much more to learn, and I know I’ll learn it here!


I fully appreciate this way of teaching. Every aspect of painting is very well explained and put into light with the videos. I have been able to do quick and great progresses with Esperoart. Chris is always looking for giving us new informations.

Fabienne Warnant

Chris’ tutorials are comprehensive and complete. I learn something every time I watch a video or work through the instructions. These are the best online watercolor classes I’ve tried. Chris is responsive to questions and eager to help. I’m so glad I found this great learning opportunity. It really has improved my painting and understanding of techniques, color theory, shapes and forms. Can’t wait to see what’s next!


I can’t say enough in praise of the content Chris provides for us, the videos accompanying each project are well planned out and executed making it very easy to understand and follow. I have learnt so much about watercolour, both how it works and colour theory from Chris. Before I joined Chris I was really floundering around finding watercolour a really difficult medium to work in , but Chris through his excellent teaching and thoughtful approach has enabled me to see where I was going wrong. Besides that he helps me to truly see the subject that I am painting, his work is exquisitely beautiful and I hope to produce such work myself one day, with his help I believe this is possible, he always has the time to answer any queries and to address any problems that I may face , I feel so lucky to be part of his school.


I am so happy to be able to write this testimonial regarding this wonderful watercolor school!  When I began painting, I could not find any good artists teaching in my city, so I turned to the web and found Chris.  His tutorials have been amazing and challenging! But, I believe that challenge has made my skills improve and grow. Chris has been there every step of the way for me and others in his school.  He has provided one-on-one help and advice so that I was able to successfully complete several pieces.  His work is exquisite and his teaching style and videos are very well done and easy to understand.  I look forward to many more wonderful projects. Thank you so much Chris for starting this fantastic website!


I wanted to update my testimonial because just looking at the previews of the monthly project is an inadequate expression of all that is offered to the members of Chris’s online school. I’m speaking of the very lengthy tutorial on colour theory and how the colour wheel works in relation to the actual paints we are using.
There is also a very comprehensive two part series on mixing greens, which I think a lot of people struggle with in any sphere of watercolour. This is developing my knowledge way beyond the task of painting a flower, the way Chris explains everything in a calm, logical and progressive way is an enormous help.
I’m printing off all the accompanying notes and now have effectively my own book developing, which is going to be a very precious resource for me


I joined Chris over a year ago first of all on his patreon and now his online school. I do desperately needed to understand how watercolour works and behaves as I didn’t find it an easy medium. I chose Chris to teach me because he has such a passion for this medium and uses it in such a beautiful way in painting flowers. Not just any flowers but living breathing vibrant flowers which are a joy to behold as they come to life on my watercolour paper. I could have never been satisfied with a more botanical style as thst sort of painting doesn’t resonate with me, in my view cut flowers used for that purpose are already dying and show the vibrancy and life of growing flowers. Chris is the most amazing teacher he explains everything in a clear concise way, helping me to understand how to make this medium work. I’m blown away by the time dedication and care he puts into every tutorial in order to give us the maximum possibility of success, for myself I’m thrilled with the success I’ve had with some of my paintings where previously I only experienced failure with watercolour


Tried his school for one month and just extended it to an annual subscription. His real time tutofrials are clear and easy to follow, and most important is the individual feedback. Wonderful!


I joined Chris’s school in order to learn to do backgrounds – having previously done only botanical painting. Chris is a patient, caring teacher. He comments personally on your work and gives lots of help.


I needed help. As a long time self taught watercolorist and not satisfied with my work I enrolled in his course. Chris has a deep knowledge and passion for watercolor. Chris leaves nothing out and gives the student everything from the beginning to the completion of the painting he explains the “why” of paint color choices and and shows how the watercolor paint to water ratio works. Most important to me was he showed how to mix his colors and his pallet was always shown. Everything was shown stroke by stroke. I cannot thank Chris enough. My paintings now are not muddy, they are cleaner and more colorful. His teaching enabled me to do a black and white tonal study with red strawberries. Yes and I even painted Chris’ Spring Iris which was my favorite. Thank you so much Chris for your Esperot (so much more included here) and your wonderful teaching that enabled me to improve my paintings!
