Curious about watercolour? Always wanted to paint but not sure where to start? A nature lover? We've got you.

In this class, your friendly and experienced teacher Andrina will guide you through the techniques behind basic watercolour painting and brushwork, including colour mixing and theory, creating gradients, washes, glazing and adding detail to illustrations with watercolour. After an introduction to materials and practical techniques we will work together on a range of exercises and a series of small watercolour pieces with a focus on botanicals and insects.

This class is a great place to explore watercolour art, no matter your level of experience. Anyone can learn how to paint with watercolours, and this class caters to both beginners and those with some painting and illustration experience. Come join us for a beautiful day of painting at our vibrant artist studio, The Nest in Alexandria, just a ten minute walk from Redfern station.

At the end of the class you take home your lovely artworks, brushes and mixing palette along with a project-based technique guide and fresh inspiration - ohh yeah!

Such a beautiful creative space to paint in and Andrina was an excellent teacher. She talked us through many techniques during the warm up exercises and shared a lot of techniques then explained in detail how to achieve what we needed when painting the final designs. The class was relaxed yet informative as we painted plants and lovely butterflies. I learnt so much in this lesson and Andrina was a fantastic teacher, so knowledgeable and patient- with a sense of humour that made it a very comfortable space to be learning in. I highly recommend this class! Ten stars!
