Event Details

Intermediate to Advanced

Estimated Materials Cost $100 (for paper if you have paint and brushes already)

With a large amount of subject matter, we will be exploring a variety of styles and ways of depicting the natural world. From painting flowers with different approaches, to birds with minimalist backgrounds, water scenes and many other subjects in between, students will be challenged with a range of creative options to enhance their watercolour journey. The goal of this workshop is to show the flexibility of watercolour; to explore, experiment and learn new techniques. Also included are lessons on the theory of painting colour, light and shadows, so you will gain insight not only in the ‘how’, but also the ‘why’. With knowledge that you can use for a lifetime, new friends and a great artistic environment, you will come away feeling energised and inspired!
