This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

This watercolour painting class is perfect for absolute beginners or those who have previously enjoyed Susie’s workshops. Learn quickly how to paint with the tricky medium of watercolour. In this course you will:

  • learn how to keep watercolours transparent and beautiful
  • learn about painting a variety of subject matter with watercolour from still life to flowers and landscape using a loose style that does not concentrate on a lot of detail.
  • develop your ability to tackle all sorts of subjects with confidence.

You will come away with a feeling of wonder and addiction to this extraordinary watery paint and be confident that you can tackle anything.

What other students say about Susie

_[Susie] taught the class enthusiastically with a great sense of humour and plenty of hands on feedback and encouragement. I had lots of fun too and she helped me let go of some of my apprehensions about watercolour application with her individual approach. It was the best art workshop I have ever attended and I was thrilled with what I accomplished that day! _
