It is easy to become frustrated and despondent when starting out with watercolours. Beginner's classes often consist of endless colour wheels you don't quite understand before you even get to paint a thing.

But there are some fun hacks you can learn, to get results fast. The use of washes and colour and blending can create something appealing and worth putting in a frame.

This fast-paced live streaming class will get you started painting flowers, leaves, shapes, patterns and textures from the get-go and is lots of fun and absorbing. A perfect gift to cheer a friend, colleague or loved one up during lockdown.

During this live online class, you will:

  • Learn how to put a beginners kit together on the cheap
  • Find out about materials and grades of paper and watercolour
  • And most importantly start painting and loosening up!

You have the option of ordering the class with a box of materials or if you already have watercolour paints and paper you can use them.

Please note:
If you have your own materials you can book into this class up to the last minute. However, you will need to allow between four to seven days to order a ticket with materials. If your parcel is delayed, this class runs frequently so you can join the next class once your parcel has arrived.

Pamela was very professional and informative. We very much enjoyed the class and will be looking into enrolling in further classes with Pamela.

Shannon Baker Oct 2021


As a genuine 100% beginner, this class was so much fun! Pamela was absolutely fantastic and checked in regularly to make sure everyone was going okay. She covered a lot of content so the pace was quite fast and I was worried I might forget things, so I was so grateful to see that we were sent a video of the class afterwards. Highly recommend

Emily Walton Oct 2021


This was my first Class Bento experience with my daughter's participating too and it was really lovely! Pamela was wonderful at explaining the different watercolour techniques and we walked away at the end with our own beautiful art work. It's definitely inspired me to keep experimenting with watercolour!

Maria Vainio Oct 2021


Great class. Pam took the time to explain techniques and tips that as an absolute beginner I found invaluable.

Marina Butler Oct 2021


Teacher was great - lots of good tips & techniques.
Only issue was signing in to zoom as it said meeting was locked - took 10mins and numerous tries before I got in - nearly gave up.

Annalissa Roy Sep 2021


Pamela explained everything clearly and thoroughly, from materials to techniques. We brought our own materials, and she gave extremely helpful information about how our materials would work. Definitely using high quality watercolour paper is advised! Pamela gave lovely encouragement and feedback during the course, and we really enjoyed the interactions. With these techniques, we have continued to use our watercolours and make new pieces.

Agung Suwandaru Sep 2021


Very good! I had so many experiences with this class.

Veronika Bracegirdle Sep 2021


Pretty happy with how the class went. The teacher was really great. She didn't go to fast but would make sure everyone was up to the current steps before moving on. The tips were great. I had lots of fun in this class. And will highly recommend this to others and likely attend another class

Melanie Young Sep 2021


This class was a really good introduction to watercolour painting - covering the tools and equipment you'd need to get started with watercolour painting. Pamela ran through a number of different techniques that we practiced alongside her; and at the end of the class we painted a large flower together. I've decided to join her watercolour flowers class to learn a bit more about this medium. A fun way to spend a couple of hours via zoom. The supplied kit had everything we needed for the class and then enough paint & paper left over to practice some things on our own afterwards.

Painting workshop review by Melanie Young

Renee Kovalskis Sep 2021


Pamela is very knowledgeable about all things watercolour and shared her knowledge in a friendly and accessible way. I learnt so much that I hope I can go back to dabbling on my own. The materials supplied were also very generous. I was pleased with some of the samples that I created and am inspired to give it another go. Also appreciated the follow up hand out with guidance on what materials to purchase. Thanks so much Pamela.

Melanie Beissel Sep 2021


Pamela was SO efficient, helpful, engaging, real, informative and humorous!
I felt thoroughly able to complete all skills and am really looking forward to building on what Pamela has taught me.
I'll definitely be signing up again to her classes and recommending them to my friends!

Painting workshop review by Anne-Marie Morgan

Trina Cox Sep 2021


I really enjoyed Pamela’s class on the 12th September. She show me many good tips for the watercolour medium ❤️

Leanne Solomons Sep 2021


Pamela was so knowledgeable about watercolours and her class was definitely pitched at the right level. She had an extremely well structured and organised set of activities to build your confidence and experiences with watercolours, so that afterwards, when you are on your own, you could experiment and build your skills at your own pace. She also answered all questions in a pleasant and patient manner and sent us a list of equipment and tips via email after the lesson. Lastly, the class went a little longer than was scheduled, which I thought showed how enthusiastic and focused on sharing her craft she is. Highly recommended.

Terrence Tang Sep 2021


Pamela's class was very enjoyable and great to follow for absolute beginners such as ourselves.

Cathy Bray Sep 2021


Pamela covered an extra ordinary amount of information in the allotted 2 hour workshop. I loved the inspirational notebook with watercolour pieces that she showed us at the end. That might have been nice to see at the beginning while she was talking about paper and watercolour selection. Very happy that she said she would provide a list or recommended materials - so look forward to receiving that. Understanding and very encouraging - I’d definitely like to do Pamela’s class in the next level up in Watercolours in a month or two. Thank you for delivering the excellent kit, too,

Mr Haymes Aug 2021


Pamela was a fantastic teacher.
We had a great time learning lots of new techniques.
Pamela also has tips about art supply brands, which we appreciated.
We loved it.

Lyn Wotton Aug 2021


Pamela pitched the information perfectly for beginners, explaining the basic tools and how to use them, what they do - paper, paint and brushes. The small project at the end was fun, and confidence building, it would have been nice if we could have done one more to really get a 'feel' for what water colours can achieve. Time goes so quickly though and that can't be helped.

Claire Rayner Aug 2021


I did this class online and it was really enjoyable. Pamela has so much knowledge and gave some great tips on methods, equipment etc. I feel confident about starting my own watercolour painting from what I learnt.

Hawanatu Bangura Aug 2021

It’s an entertaining activity to do during lockdown although I don’t think painting is for me but it was nice to try something different :)

Rosemary Koenig Aug 2021


Pamela covered a lot of ground in 2 hours but gave us the essential information in a clear and concise manner. We got stuck into painting quickly and with her directions our first efforts weren’t too shabby! I enjoyed the class very much but be prepared for a fairly rapid pace.

Sally Anderson Aug 2021

Pamela demonstrated a wide range of techniques, giving me the confidence and skills to make a start with water colour painting. Very enjoyable, the time went in a flash.

Painting workshop review by Natalina

Billie May 2021


I actually have no artistic talent, but this class has inspired me to try different things, it was fun, interesting, and a way of expression I hadn't considered, will be continuing to attempt different ways of using this medium. Thank you to our leader, plenty of information on best products to use and costs. Thank you for a lovely morning Pamela, you obviously enjoy your art and I will never reach that, but will have lots of fun doing my own Billie

IT IS ONE O'CLOCK AND I HAVE JUST MADE STOP.

Another fantastic class with Pamela. She is very patient and thorough, and goes through everything step by step, so that everyone learns every details.
The ladies all loved the class, and can't wait to start painting on their own.
Thanks Pamela :-)

Lindsey Jobbins Apr 2021


I have been playing with watercolours for many years. In two hours, Pamela was able to explain and demonstrate both how watercolours work and techniques to use to create different effects. I also created a delightful Chinese style flower in under five minutes. I am looking forward to following on from this class with other practical, novel and fun suggestions. Thank you , Pamela.

Painting workshop review by Lindsey Jobbins Sydney

Tara Bouchier Apr 2021


I haven’t actually completed my class yet, as I’m waiting for my box of items to arrive. Luckily, there is a second session for me to enrol into, and my box of items should arrive in time. Great communication from Pamela, who updated me with when the box was being posted and my options if it didn’t arrive in time for the first class. I’m really looking forward to receiving my box and attending the class!

Jane O'Brien Apr 2021


Thoroughly enjoyed the class Thankyou so much.

Amy Dejong Apr 2021


Fantastic and fun lesson! Loved it and teaching style was very clear and explained well! Thank you!

Michael Riedel Apr 2021


Very good and informative. Interesting techniques to try. Need to practice these class exercises and expand upon them. We bought the craft kit that goes with the class. A great start in the journey of watercolours for us.

Cadi McInerney Apr 2021


A really great introduction to techniques for novices - like me. Pamela was informative and went at a good pace. Well set up online with 2 camera views (face and hands/paper), so you could clearly see the techniques as Pamela discussed them.
Highly recommend this course if you've never picked up a paint brush (like me), or exploring a new medium. I also recommend buying the kit. You use all items during the class and the paper is already prepped for you.

Karen Ballard Apr 2021


Pamela is excellent. Really clear and patient and I learned heaps. I highly recommend doing this course :-)

Well spoken, good pace, cut out a few times which can’t be helped! Enjoyed it

Rose Graham Mar 2021


Thankyou Pamela, loved your class. I found it very informative doing the different techniques first, I learnt a lot from that.
You explained the process very well during each section.
I also liked the water pencil techniques that you did and I can see that they would be an asset to water colour painting. I will get some in the future.
Cheers Rose

Pamela was a very patient teacher for beginners. It was great how Pamela taught us techniques in a clear demonstration that was easy to grasp and follow. Would like to do more classes with Pamela! Was a little worried about joining but really enjoyed the 2 hrs.

Flora-Joan Rotterdam Mar 2021


I really enjoyed this class and the teacher Pamela was great, easy to follow instructions.

Jennifer Farrelly Mar 2021


Was well presented but was a bit rushed towards the end of the class. But I enjoyed it and will be practicing until I can perfect my peony. Thanks Pam

Stacey Parker Mar 2021


Pamela gave some really helpful advice to get us started. We were able to try several techniques in a short time frame and then apply them to painting a flower. I'll be looking to do some more of her classes as it was very enjoyable.

Painting workshop review by Pavithra Krishna

Elena Shankland Feb 2021


it was a very enjoyable class. Pamela is a very good teacher.
Some people didn't mute their mic at the beginning of the class so we couldn't hear properly at times.
also it was a team bonding experience for us.

Sarah Till Feb 2021


Thanks for the enjoyable course. I really learnt a lot in a short space of time!

Rebecca Wilkinson Jan 2021


The teacher was very knowledgeable about her subject and worked well with the livestream. She kept a reasonable pace for learning and allowed time for any questions. The box was well put together and contained 95% of what was needed (and 100%of what needed to be bought). Technical delays were due to user lack of familiarity with Zoom not the teacher's issues. The camera was angled perferctly so you could see her paints, paper and hands and learn what she was doing. Would highly recommend to an absolute beginner or relative beginner and I will try another course now. I love my peony painting and can't believe I achieved this from 1 lesson.

Painting workshop review by Rebecca Wilkinson Sydney

Claudia Zines Jan 2021


This was so much fun experimenting with different watercolour techniques. The materials provided were great. Most enjoyable!

Dorota Krason Dec 2020


Pamela did an excellent job leading the class on the fundamentals of watercolors. She explained the importance of using high quality watercolor paper (heavy weight paper with glycerin coating to slow water absorption), how to identify a good paint brush (bristles that return to true after bending) and the difference in cost/quality of water color paints.

She also demonstrated various techniques such as wet-on-wet, wet-on-dry, watercolor mechanics, masking with wax, texturing with salt as well as others. Her camera set up gave us a bird eye view of her canvas, and she clearly explain what she was doing. It was very easy to follow along and practice.

Overall I’m very happy with the class and it greatly exceeded my previous experience self learning watercolor.

Great fun, very interactive and relaxing at the same time. Thanks again for the class!

Daniel Bloom Oct 2020


From making the booking to enjoying the online class, everything was so enjoyable. Pamela was amazing and her class was so fun!
We had packages that had to go out to people and it was taken care of by ClassBento, I will 100% be looking at using their service again.

Julisa Edwards Oct 2020


It was a good class and she had lots of great tips and information, but it felt rushed and the pace made me a bit anxious.

Claire Dunn Oct 2020


Loved it, especially doing the watercolour paintings of flowers at the end. Thankyou so much.

Albert Wang Oct 2020


Pamela ran an awesome session on Watercolour Painting! I couldn't help but feel like the stuff I tried really looked like what she was doing but it was great learning about the theory of what we were trying to do and then applying it. Great fun.

Francine Schaepper Oct 2020


Great class filled with lots of tips! I definitely have a lot to work on now and a new found appreciation for watercolors!

Alison Blazey Oct 2020


This was a perfect intro to watercolours, with a mix of theory and simple practical exercises to learn some basic techniques. The 2hr timeframe and zoom platform worked well. I’d highly recommend Pamela’s class

I enjoyed experimenting with water and pigment, and learning a new skill during the current Melbourne lockdown.

Pamela gave really clear, easy-to-follow instructions and good demonstrations of all of the techniques in this class, plus a great rundown of materials both in the kit and that we might like to try in the future. Thanks for an enjoyable session! I particularly liked the cherry tree and the explanation of how to do background gradients.

Sean Flegeltaub Sep 2020


I thoroughly enjoyed Pamela's class today. Though it was held virtually, it was well planned in advance. I received the water colour painting kit weeks beforehand and was given things to prepare before the class.

Pamela shared great tips for beginners and I'm excited to continue to learning how to colour paint. Thank you for a great experience.

Barbara Li Sep 2020


I had so much fun with the class. Kept practising after the class had finished and signed up for another one by Pamela. Definitely give it a go.

Shaw Group Sep 2020


Pamela was a fantastic teacher for this class, carefully demonstrating various methods of painting, and the tyles of supplies that are available. It was the perfect class for an absolute beginner, and I was pleasantly surprised at how much I learnt in this 2 hour session. Highly recommended! Thanks Pamela.

Jennifer Barrett Aug 2020


I really enjoyed this class. I learned some fundamental techniques that I can use to keep playing with watercolours

A really great intro, covering lots of techniques and info about paints and paper. Really fun!

Anne Meene Aug 2020

Such a great class with Pamela, it was so easy to follow along and I’m so happy with my final peonie. We had a lot of fun and would definitely do a class with her again.

Watercolour Painting for Absolute Beginners review by Bridgette Sulicich Sydney

Kate Letheren Jul 2020


Had a lovely class with Pamela. We learned a range of techniques that I’ll be able to use again. Everything ran smoothly, not too rushed. Pamela has two cameras set up so one was focused on her workspace while she spoke into this other camera. This was really effective and meant I didn’t miss anything.

Rini Ismail Jul 2020


Pamela is a wonderful instructor. She gave great tips on equipment and paper required and recommended supplier. She taught various watercolour techniques in that short span of time.

Painting workshop review by Stephanie Hawkins

Fiona Stasiukynas May 2020


It was a great class. I liked trying all the different techniques on the sample board. It will be my reference now. Pamela’s overview of the basics and instructions for applying the paint were clear and her enthusiasm for watercolour was inspiring. I believe my skills will grow - as I practise :)

Marina Buscaino May 2020


I was a total watercolour painting beginner and this class was a lot of fun. Pamela was clear and her introduction to different methods of painting was great.

Lisa McNamee May 2020


It was a great class and a lovely way to spend the afternoon. Pamela was very informative and passed on some wonderful techniques. Im hooked!

Vania Chew Sep 2019


The absolute beginner's watercolour workshop was an enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon. The beginning activity was a great way for us newbies to practise various watercolour techniques and begin feeling comfortable with holding a paintbrush. All art supplies were provided and a hot drink from the downstairs cafe was included in the cost as well. Pamela did a good job of demonstrating the techniques simply and effectively.

Suggestion for improvement: the taping down of papers for the beginning activity seemed to take considerable time and could be something that was prepped for students before the workshop.

India Cornish Sep 2019


This was a great class. Materials were provided which was really helpful considering we were all beginners. The teacher was friendly and knowledgeable. Great value for money. Definitely recommend.

Elizabeth Klerk Sep 2019


Very nice class, great day out learnt a lot off techniques. Pamela is a very knowledgeable teacher
