Are you searching for creative things to do at home in the lead up to Christmas? Unleash your inner artist and learn to draw, ink and paint with watercolours in this online paint and sip class.

You'll be surprised to discover how fun and rewarding watercolour painting can be with this beginner-friendly paint and sip class!

Guided virtually by an experienced artist, this paint and sip workshop will help you have lots of fun at home as you discover the full potential of ink and watercolour as a medium and learn to paint stunning artwork with a drink in hand.

Looking for virtual Christmas party ideas, fun at-home hens party ideas or remote team building activities? Gather your group, wherever they may be, for a fun and rewarding few hours of painting and sipping from the comfort of your home.

In this online class, you will:

  • Cover the basics of watercolour painting.
  • Practice creative drawing techniques.
  • Use your newly acquired skills to paint simple Christmas cards.
  • Practice inking to get a confident quality in your ink lines.
  • Add ink to your paintings.

At the end of the class, you'll have a beautiful selection of A5 watercolour cards and tags, along with the equipment, skills and confidence to continue exploring this relaxing medium!

Please note:
  • If booked as a team building activity, your teacher can tailor your class to perfectly suit your group. Paint a house if you're estate agents, or a shoe if you're podiatrists!
  • Craft boxes can take up to four days to arrive. Please allow this much time before your class if ordering with the box.
  • Watercolour paints wash off almost everything, so you can use cups and plates with your paints and they will clean up very easily, even if you leave them with watercolour paint for days. Some colours may leave a slight stain on white clothing, but generally, they wash out of clothing 100%.

Stewart has been running fun and easy art classes for many years in Brisbane, whilst working as a full time artist.

Stewart splits his days between organising and running paint and sip classes, painting murals commercially, painting artworks for sale online and in a gallery, and online selling t-shirts and prints.

"My very first sale through a gallery was a watercolour of two naked women, actually one was wearing a string of pearls from memory, dancing the tango. Then I sold ink and watercolour paintings of different dog breeds. Now I am more likely to be found in a pub painting a large mural, in my studio painting in acrylic to make into prints, or running paint and sip classes." Stewart Shuker.

I think I am the luckiest person in the world, helping people like you discover your creative side and skilling you up to do even more arty stuff.

It's a proven fact - creativity makes us happy !!
