Paint and Sip Class: Watercolour and Wine

Watercolour painting for beginners



2 hours Class size 1 to 30 label $65


In-person classes are permitted in Queensland, under the state government's guidelines

Your host, Work-Shop 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)

This is a two-hour workshop aimed at complete beginners or those who have some drawing and painting experience. This class will teach you the practical skills and techniques used in watercolour painting, whether you want to use this medium for illustrative work, typography or fine art painting.

This workshop will focus on creating a single composition of a variety of succulent plants from an aerial or side perspective. With a plethora of examples seen across creative, wellbeing and home magazines and media, get in on the trend and create your own masterpiece to frame and hang on the wall. We will be drawing from both live plants and also sourced photos. You will be introduced to observation skills, drawing and composition methods and watercolour application. This workshop is for any artistic skill level, with all materials supplied.

 

Please note: This class requires at least six students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get

  • Use of quality watercolour paper and painting materials.

  • And of course Wine, to get those creative juices flowing! (We provide a red and white wine, feel free to bring something different if you prefer)


What to bring
  • Yourself and a willingness to experiment

Vanessa has always been an ‘arty soul’, growing up in Byron Bay and always dabbling in art and craft. She holds separate tertiary qualifications in Design, Visual Arts and Teaching, and enjoys passing on to others her knowledge and skills.

As a practising ceramic artist for the past 13 years, Vanessa exhibits her work at various galleries in Queensland and New South Wales, her work also part of private collections both national and international. She loves nothing better than pinching porcelain, decorating surfaces and splashing colour. Inspiration for Vanessa’s work comes from the cultural richness that surrounds her. She weaves her experience of travel, art histories and daily rituals into her artmaking. Creating series of themed ceramic works, Vanessa uses either hand building or slip casting techniques and always strives to leave a trace of the hand on her work.

Vanessa enjoys exploring the possibilities of mixing various materials and processes to create art that is evocative, textural and desirable.
