In this beginner-friendly online painting class, learn how to paint with vivid watercolours at home as you get lost in an undersea wonderland painting your favourite sea-dwelling creatures. Stunning seahorses, whimsical whales, serene sea turtles and wonderous whale sharks - what will you choose?

Taught by super-talented Brisbane artist, Carlie Edwards, it's a fantastic opportunity to unwind in the comfort of your own home, get lost in a creative craft and learn new art skills. Carlie's workshops are relaxed, practical, but most importantly - super fun!

You'll be guided live online throughout the painting process with a range of exciting, simple techniques designed to get you comfortable and relaxed. We'll then walk through two marine animal artworks where you can either choose to follow along step by step, or use this as a guide to creating your own marine masterpieces.

We’ll give you a series of oceanic animal templates to choose from, so there are no drawing skills required. This means everyone’s creations are different; you get to embrace your creativity and add your own artistic flair!

We love seeing your unique artworks, but for those who prefer to follow a step-by-step process, Carlie will walk you through one simple ocean animal and one more advanced animal during the workshop.

Over two-and-a-half-hours you'll learn:

  • How to apply watercolours
  • Tools and techniques to achieve special effects
  • How to navigate ‘happy accidents’ and simple ways to make corrections
  • Colour mixing, colour theory and how to choose colours for your artwork
  • Tips to frame your brand new masterpieces!

There are tons of ways to express yourself with colour and detail in your chosen marine animal designs and your supportive teacher will provide lots of help and interaction to make sure you're super proud of your finished artworks.

If you've always wanted to learn watercolour art, this class for beginners is a brilliant opportunity to get you started on your painting journey.

Pour yourself a glass of your favourite drink or get settled with a cup of tea and immerse yourself in this mindful and creative activity. You'll finish up with two stunning watercolour artworks, with plenty of new skills to continue creating!

Thank you so much, just from my first animal to my second I had sooo much improvement!

Ninja Earl Aug 2021


Great class with basic water colour theory and a very kind teacher. Just was a shame the white pen needed to create the same effect as shown in the example photos was not also provided in the box.

Charlotte Elliott Aug 2021


We set up a private session and it was the perfect lockdown activity! Carlie was a great teacher and we all learnt loads and came away with some very impressive artworks. Highly recommended this class and the teacher

I LOVED this class. Carlie has a lovely teaching style and is warm and encouraging. This is the 2nd class I’ve done with Carlie and although I’ve been painting for a couple of years now, I still pick up tips from her classes. Love that we can rewatch the class to do it at our own pace again. Thank you Carlie.

Gill Scott Jul 2021


Great workshop. Lots of practical tips and demonstrations. Tiny bit rushed at the end. Would definitely recommend and do another workshop with same artist.

Kellie Bedwell Jul 2021


Perfect intro class! I haven’t picked up a paintbrush in years so I wasn’t sure how I’d go, but this class made it easy to create a really lovely artwork using very simple techniques, with a few great tips and tricks along the way to make your painting really ‘pop’!

I have never tried watercolour painting before. Carlie was a great teacher who taught us different techniques. She spoke clearly and slowly throughout the workshop. I was really impressed with my finished paintings. Thanks so much Carlie.

Amazing watercolour workshop! It’s suitable for beginner and intermediate as the pace is easy to keep up with but there are plenty of options for adding some additional techniques and details for those more experienced using the medium. Will keep an eye out for Carlie’s other workshops

Carlie's workshop was really relaxing and she prepared us well with the kit. She was also in touch beforehand regarding shipping which I appreciated. I had done a watercolour workshop F2F in another setting a couple of years ago; this was my first time trying via Zoom - it was seamless and Carlie made it really easy to see the techniques she was using and did it at a good pace. I will definitely try another workshop in the future!

An amazing class, well planned with fantastic quality materials, the techniques demonstrated were really clear and helpful. I felt very relaxed and comfortable doing the watercolour paintings as a beginner and the teacher answered all the questions asked. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to try watercolour :)

I loved this class! It was a great way to unwind after work. Carlie is great, she went through the basics of watercolour so we could then have fun playing with our own style. I ended up surprised of what I've done. Highly recommended

This was such a fun and relaxing weeknight activity! Watercolours had always seemed so daunting to me but Carlie made them super accessible and fun. I’m now super excited to continue experimenting with all the beautiful colours provided in the craft kit.

What a fantastic creative activity to break up the work week! Carlie was fantastic and walked us though all the cool techniques we could use on our artworks. She was so encouraging and make the class super calming and enjoyable. I can’t believe how my paintings turned out too! If anyone is looking to get back into watercolour painting or even just try it for the first time like me, then Charlie’s class should be your top pick!
