Definitely! Most of Unwindle's users don't have experience with drawing or painting. But everyone can paint with watercolor—we promise. Most beginners start with the Watercolor Beginners Course where you will be guided through all the basics and every video tutorial is set up for all levels. There is no “doing it wrong.” Take that step outside your comfort zone and try something new. Like Henri Matisse says: "Creativity takes courage." You can purchase the Watercolor Beginners Course separately, or become an Unwindle member, where the course is included!
Currently, most videos are created with watercolor paints, but you could use any medium that you already have. There are also drawing videos and more different types of creative activities will be added to Unwindle in the near future.
There are in general two types of videos:
Furthermore, we have the Watercolor Beginners Course included in the membership with 6 lessons to get you started with the basics of watercolor painting.
All the real-time videos on Unwindle are between 7 to 25 minutes per tutorial or creative meditation session. There are also short versions of every video, so you choose any video during the day based on how much time you would like to spend on your creative session and do everything at your own pace, whether that is on a daily basis, every week, or once a month - it's your creative me-time. The live workshops normally take 45 minutes and the live Q&As 30 minutes.
Definitely! You can already get started with pen and paper, but we do recommend you to purchase some painting materials, as most videos are recorded using watercolor paints. However, if you don’t have them yet, you can still follow many of the videos while using any type of art material (such as colored pencils, acrylic paints, pastels).
To get started, you'll need a pen, paper and 3 basic painting materials as currently most of the videos on Unwindle are using watercolor painting.

Watercolor is soothing to watch and do, as you work with pigment and water and you’ll get to experience how the paint flows with the water. Furthermore, it is very compact, you need little space. And you won’t get dirty from painting with watercolors and it’s easy to wash out watercolor paint from your clothes.
You can ask your questions or comments underneath every video and we will answer these as soon as possible. Furthermore, we have monthly live sessions where you can ask your questions and get feedback and Live Q&As to ask all of your questions.
