If you still want to attend this class, please first consider government restrictions in QLD. If you are currently allowed to attend, but are later prevented from doing so, we will postpone your booking accordingly.

In this class, students will be given an introduction to the botanical form concentrating on layers of colour & mark making. Students will learn to apply acrylic paint using carefully selected colours & brushstrokes to complete their own stunning botanical piece.

With a love of flowers & their cultural & nostalgic significance, Kate Pittas has spent the recent years of her artistic career creating semi abstract botanical paintings, with work represented in galleries and home wares stores throughout NSW & VIC. Kate is an art teacher, and successful artist. Her classes are beautifully structured to allow both complete beginners and semi-accomplished artists to create work that combines gorgeously thick layers of paint and colour.

In the class students will work together to learn the basic gestural brush strokes, and practice the layering techniques. The semi-abstract style is a whole heap of fun!

Under Kate's guidance they will then create their own botanical masterpiece on a 50cm x 50cm canvas

Pleasant painting space albeit a little crowded. Excellent teacher. Knows her stuff, warm and encouraging. It was the second time I had done this particular workshop and there was more active teaching in the first which I liked. Definitely not paint by numbers!

Kate was really wonderful at guiding us through colour palettes, brush marks and shapes, and encouraging us all to unleash our creativity. I took home a painting I was really happy with. Highly recommend.

Absolutely fantastic way to start, or restart, your adventure with painting. We received advice and guidance but encouraged to do what felt right. The result...? 20+ paintings that were beautiful, unique and full of the person that painted them!
I'll be back!

The teacher Kate was excellent at explaining how to paint and how to best use the mixing of paints for desired effect. Ended up with a lovely canvas to hang on my walls.

The teacher has been a school teacher and it shows, she explains everything clearly and is encouraging at all times.
This is the second class I've been to at this location and I've always been happy with it. Everything is provided and is good quality.
Having been before, I came prepared with some cheese and crackers to have with a drink, and we enjoyed ourselves immensely.

The teacher was great although because of class sizes I never really got a chance to get her help as there was so many of us she never got around to everyone. A shame because I was so looking forward to attending this class and having a chat to the teacher. The class was packed full of way too many people for such a tiny space! You literally cannot walk to your bag at the back of the room, we were literally all elbow to elbow. It says on the website for other people not to bring snacks etc especially if it's going to interfere with the space of others. Well, many of the other women who attended brought lots of big containers of food that they put on the table rudely almost knocking my canvas off twice! The teacher and paint bar took photos from our class during the session and said we would get copies sent to our email addresses at the end of class but I didn't receive anything. I contacted the paint bar directly about this and got no help or reply. I have attended a few paint classes now and this one was by far the most underwhelming and unenjoyable I have attended. I should also mention that my review in no way reflects a problem with the teacher, she was great! More the space and others that affected my experience. But because of this experience I wouldn't attend this space for classes again.

This was awesome. As a beginner who hasn't painted before I was amazed at the end result. The teacher was terrific and everything was supplied except the wine. Good to sip and paint. Keen to try my hand at another painting now.

Teacher was fantastic, felt the class was a little big for the space but overall there was enough freedom to explore with the painting which I enjoyed compared to the other classes at the same venue.

Kate's class was beyond amazing. She guided and encouraged us on a creative journey. It was so nice to walk into a fully set up space and enjoy the time to unwind. Being able to walk away with such a large artwork for such a reasonable price, was great. Would recommend 100%

Three hours of great fun. I have NEVER painted before, but will definitely be back. Our instructor was helpful, encouraging and easy to follow. There were a great variety of paint colour choices and brushes to choose from. I mostly went for fun with friends and was most surprised that I walked out with my own creation that I really like and plan to hang on the wall!
