Your host, Sydney Community College is COVID-19 aware

This means that this teacher won't run a class if they've had flu symptoms in the last 14 days, and will adhere to relevant state restrictions (e.g. on maximum number of students per class)

Learn how to paint botanical art with watercolour at this fun Sydney workshop. You will take away your own beautiful artwork and the fundamental skills of capturing botanical art with water paints.

This workshop is ideal for both beginners and anyone with some watercolour experience, as you will learn the main principles of botanical art, tips of pencil sketching with detailing in an object, how to use watercolour and mix colours, creating depth with watercolours, and shading and detailing botanical objects with watercolours.

The workshop will begin with an introduction to the unique and specialised art form that is botanical art, before moving on to learning how to create depth with light and tone in an object with watercolours. The second half of the class will focus on the principals of light, tone and depth in an actual specimen. 

At the end of this botanical watercolour workshop, you will have created a beautiful and realistic artwork and will be confident to attempt an object in botanical art yourself.

You are eligible for a 10% discount when you provide proof of enrolment at Tillys Art Supplies (Rozelle), Newtown Art Supplies and Eckersley’s Art Supplies (Sydney). Just show a copy of your course enrolment confirmation.


Please note: This class requires a minimum number of students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class; in this case we'll inform and fully refund you, so please watch your email/SMS 1 day prior to the class

" Life makes surprises if you follow your dreams; And leads you to your true calling."

Shipra trained for 5 years at a premier art institute, and has a Degree in Fine Arts and a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.
She has worked as a Visual Merchandiser and Set Designer for many years and has gained extensive experience in Store Planning and Graphic Art. Throughout this period, Shipra has continued her love for drawing and watercolor painting.

Over the years her works include detailed watercolor paintings, participating and selling in several exhibitions, doing illustration works and above all conducting workshops and teaching watercolour and botanical art at various institutions. Her eye for detail and perseverance to translate it into her work has been consistent.
After coming to this beautiful country almost a decade back, she lived in a beautiful townhouse and started painting the beautiful flora and fauna around her.
This, combined with her passion for watercolor painting, gave her the fuel to start her formal training after which she never looked back. Watercolour art is now her zeal and passion.
