Looking for relaxing and unique things to do at home? Explore the immersive world of watercolour painting as you learn how to paint none other than an anatomical skull!

Be gently guided with step-by-step instructions on how to approach this image using watercolours including how to prepare the paper, mix and blend watercolours, along with different painting techniques. NDIS supported participants have particularly enjoyed my empathetic approach to teaching.

What you'll get:

  • Outline drawing of the Skull with Orchid created by your teacher on a high-quality 300gsm watercolour paper (A4 size).
  • A carefully planned, highly informative lesson that simplifies the watercolour process from start to finish to give you skills and confidence in watercolour painting.
  • Advice and information about watercolour paints, paper, equipment and painting techniques.
  • Your own unique piece of artwork for your home!

At the end of your online class, you'll have a fantastic artwork to display as well as the skills and confidence to continue exploring watercolour art in your own time.

Please note:
The 'class and drawing' kit option includes an A4 hand-drawing specifically prepared for this lesson. This will be sent to you after you purchase a ticket for the class and is intended for those that already have watercolour paints and brushes. By selecting the 'class and box' option you'll receive both the drawing and art materials for the class, as listed below. Please allow seven days for either option to arrive.

This class is perfect for a team building session!

I am a Sydney-based exhibiting artist with a beautiful art studio set within a large subtropical-inspired garden in Sydney's Inner West.

My life-long passion for making very fine artworks includes sculpting, painting, drawing, and textiles. I also have a passion for teaching others, and love to support those wishing to find their own creative journey - whatever that may be or whatever shape it might take!

Unusually, my practice is multidisciplinary, so I cover many aspects of artmaking using a range of different materials and skills. For example, working three-dimensionally, my skills include sculpting and mould making. I work in materials such as clay, bronze, silver, wax, wood, aluminium, polyurethane, plaster, resin, concrete and even patillage (sugar-plate)! For two-dimensional works, I paint in oils, acrylics and watercolour. For drawing, I generally use lead pencil, pen and ink, charcoal and crayon in order to achieve great detail, but at other times, playful media, such as wire.

I hold a PhD and Master of Fine Arts (both 1st-class division equivalent) and a Graduate Diploma of Education. Along with private tuition in my studio, I've also taught in the Sculpture Department at UNSW Art and Design, within community adult education, rural and remote high schools.

My life is and has been artmaking! Come and join me for some serious fun in a friendly, inclusive, working art studio :)
