Get creative with watercolour in this workshop for beginners and those with some experience. Tania has gained a solid reputation for working with botanicals, and nature’s complex geometric shapes such as native Australian flora, 19th-century botanical studies, and learning to paint with watercolour. Join Tania in a warm and inviting introduction to ways of thinking and creating a final image and composition on paper using watercolour. The final aim is to have students thinking about being comfortable enough to paint from nature, allowing for happy accidents to create an amazing composition they will be happy with.

Course testimonials:

  • Loved every minute of the class.
  • Highly enjoyable. Great teaching approach and came away with lots of new techniques and ideas. Loved it and have painted non-stop in the days following the workshop!
  • I enjoyed the two days working with such an inspiring tutor. Tania planned and delivered a short couse that had us all doing lots of painting under her expert guidamce. Coming home with a composition to complete will keep me motivated to continue painting and return for more instruction at Artest.
