The Glory of Jasmine - Watercolour Online Live Workshop
The Glory of Jasmine
Welcome to the watercolour workshop from the Glory of Jasmine series.
The story of Jasmine:
Jasmine is like a poem from Persia. Delicate, atmospheric and sweetly fragrant. Jasmine is elegant with attractive dark green leaves and beautifully scented white star-shaped flowers. The name 'Jasmine' is derived from the Persian (Farsi) word Yasmin/ Yas. In the language of flowers, Jasmine stands for purity, modesty and strength. No wonder why it's known as a heavenly flower.
It's a symbol of the daughter of Prophet Muhammad, Fatimah, the lady of light (peace be upon Them). Her character and status are extremely high and mind-blowing. Her birthday anniversary is the origin of Women and Mother's day in Iran. We will celebrate this beautiful occasion on the third of February this year. We wanted to extend this spirit until Mother's day celebration in the UK and many other places around the world.
Therefore, the Glory of the Jasmine series has been curated for you! And this time in two languages, Farsi and English.
This session is about...

About Our Instructor:
Fatemeh Kian has been teaching watercolour for the past 30 years. She studied colour theory and pattern design. Soon she realized that her passion is watercolour. She started learning watercolour from the best Iranian watercolour painters at the time.
She has had hundreds of students in watercolour from the age of 3 to 85. Some of her students now have their own classes and teach watercolour.
“I love all sorts of art, from calligraphy to acrylic. I do most of them from time to time, but my true passion is watercolour. When I mix colour and water, when I put my brush on the paper, I find ultimate peace and comfort inside me.” — Fatemeh Kian
She moved to Oklahoma, the United States in 2015. There, she started teaching watercolour at the only art centre the city had. Soon she was invited to teach watercolour at the Family Resource Center of the Oklahoma State University, Oshe Lifelong Learning Institute, and the city’s only mosque.

Jasmine came to Europe from Persia (Iran) via trade routes, but both East and West have been fascinated by these blooms for centuries. The sweet and unmistakeable fragrance made the plant incredibly popular. Jasmine's buds sometimes have more scent than the actual flower, and some species only flower after sunset.
