Introduction to Watercolour Painting – 6 July 2024


In this two-hour intro watercolour class, you will learn about the pros and cons of watercolours. Rachel will explain, what brushes to use, what papers to buy and what paint to start with how to use the paint. This course comes with a step-by-step intro demonstration that shows you a variety of techniques that can be applied to most watercolour subjects. This is a great course for beginners who have not tried watercolour before or a great place for someone who wants to get back into their practise.

Everyone leaves with a finished artwork; everyone chooses their own subject from the selection that Rachel brings on the day. There are a variety of options including bird’s, flowers and landscapes. Rachel will help you complete your artwork on the day.

No prior experience necessary. All materials included, plus a morning tea.
