Join local artist Linda Newton in this full-day drawing class where you learn to outline your sketches before using watercolour pigments to fill them with colour!

Linda is known for her quirky yet incredibly detailed paintings and drawings and in this intensive workshop, she will show you how she creates her birds and dogs including how she creates movement in her characters and develops personalities.

You will then be guided in how you can add dimension and drama in your composition by adding a watercolour wash to your work. Linda will go over the basics of using watercolours and the effects that can be achieved with a variety of brushes and the finishes that can be achieved with different techniques.

Each participant will be provided with a kit to use during the workshop and take with them to continue their artistic journey at home. Your kit is valued at more than $70 and will include:

  • Zig Kuretake Watercolour Set - incl. 14 high pigment paints, waterbrush pen, waterproof 0.3 black fineliner2
  • 2 x Watercolour Brushes
  • A5 Watercolour Pad

A delicious lunch will be provided created from all local organic produce and able to cater for any dietary requirements you may have. We also provide you with a divine afternoon treat and tea and coffee facilities are available throughout the course.

The teacher was great and shared a lot of tips to keep going with the illustrations at my own time beyond this class. She was really inspirational and is highly skilled at what she does.

I really loved this class! Linda was very lovely and personable and gave each student tips and tricks on how to improve their artwork. I think everyone in the class left with at least one piece of their work they really loved. Highly recommend.

The teacher was amazing. Giving all kinds of tips and gently guiding me to be more confident. I felt very at ease and feel that so much was learned today. I would pay this again for the same teacher.
Liked the kit we went home with.
I enjoyed the space and the meal. Everything ran at 100% for me.
Thank you

Linda is a terrific teacher. This was my first time attempting watercolours and Linda explained the process very clearly at a pace I could understand. I came away wanting to have a further lesson from Linda. The venue was perfect and they provided a tasty lunch. A great experience all round. Rob
