Hi, I'm Viv

I'm a "slightly" older gal with a flip-flop obsession, a habit of making up words when I can't think of the right one, and a passion for teaching watercolor. All with a Southern drawl. 

What I Do

I teach budding artists how to paint with watercolor, skipping the confusion and frustration by guiding them through my easy step-by-step method. My method allows them to confidently create beautiful watercolor paintings they're proud to show off.

Who It's For

If you've been putting off your dreams and desires of learning how to create beautiful paintings in watercolor until "someday," then this is for you. Someday has arrived. 

Want to try it out? Then take my FREE mini-course, How to Paint a Beautiful Butterfly.

"I've had the pleasure of taking art lessons from Vivian Cooper for a couple of years. With each lesson, Viv created a new challenge. She would also ask that as students we would practice and try new challenges. Her instruction was in easily understood terms and amply explained with examples. She provided specific feedback on class projects, gently pushing me to persevere, and showing me new areas of interest."

"At the beginning of my art journey, I had a lack of confidence. It was my biggest obstacle. With Vivian’s generosity of sharing her own way of tackling paintings, and teaching me the use of great painting strategies, I was able to move past the fear of failure. In Vivian’s classes, she teaches step-by-step and takes you through the entire painting process. The best technique that Vivian has taught me was wet on wet. I love to see how the paint rushes into the water on paper. It’s so satisfying to see. The most important thing I learned from Vivian’s classes was - she told us to practice every day. To draw or paint every day. Keep an art journal. Vivian’s personality is the best. She keeps the classes so fun and easy-going. She told us not to compare our artwork to others. To go at our own pace and style. Vivian has a laid-back personality. She made me feel very comfortable in her art classes."

"About six years ago I took a 6-week watercolor course at our local high school and loved it! I struggled to find tutorials and instructions to advance my skills but then found Viv.  Her teaching style and encouragement give me the confidence to approach new, more challenging pieces."
