Jacinta Stewart is an Australian artist from Brisbane who has resided in New York City for the past 16 years. In this class, she will take you step by step through creating a gorgeous bumble bee image.

Once you understand the process you can continue on in your own time, and either produce a set to hang together as a series or gift them to friends and/or family members you may be separated from at the moment as a gesture of love and support at this time. The class focusses on teaching a process you can reproduce on your own (not just recreating the same exact image as the teacher)

In Jacinta's word's this class was inspired when:

"I visited New York in March and during my 14 day quarantine period when I returned I had a dream about painting bees. The next morning I googled images of bees and discovered that there are over 16,000 species.

I began to paint a bee each day and posted them to my Instagram page inviting commissions. My vision was that clients would hang the bees in their home during lockdown and it would serve as a “ mascot “ and reminder to

BEE in the moment
BEE- lieve all will be well
BEE safe
BEE at home. "

Fantastic class. Really generous materials box with paper and an extra canvas to practice on. The 2 hours went really quickly and was full of information about techniques. As a beginner I found it challenging, but was pleased with what I achieved. Having access to the Zoom recording for a week is fantastic. Gives me a chance to go back over things in my own time. All up a fun and informative afternoon.

Was a great class and very enjoyable. My only comment is that I think the class should have been longer as the picture was quite detailed so the teacher went very quickly in some stages. I look forward to finishing the picture. The art pack was well put together everything was there.

I learnt lots about brush technique and loved being treated like I was capable to complete this painting. We got to ask questions and I loved the background story to the inspiration behind the painting. The kit that was sent was also very generous with an extra canvas. I found the pace pretty fast and was a bit stressed at one point, but having the recording to fall back on this week is fantastic and very helpful. Can’t wait to finish my painting! Thank you so much.
