Art Nights | Online | Australian Flora with Monika Diak


This workshop will guide students step-by-step with how to draw native Australian flora using watercolour paints.

We will be working with earthy hues and focus on the shape and texture that make gum trees, wattles and waratah so uniquely Australian.

Native flora is a great subject for beginners as they are simple shapes but they also have a lot of characteristics, that once you learn to observe and interpret on the paper, can really bring the subject to life.

Art Est Art Nights

Welcome to Art Est Art Nights (online series). These are our casual online workshops which are a great way to do some art and have a creative catch up with friends, family or work colleagues in our zoom art room. Set up your space, bring your own drinks, snacks and art supplies, and settle in for a night of art.

These workshops are designed so you will gain a practical understanding of your chosen art form, but they are also relaxed and casual, so you can drink, chat and have a little fun along the way. Art Est Art Nights are suitable for all levels and beginners are very welcome. High school students also welcome to participate.

Workshops are delivered in real time with tuition from our experienced art tutors who will demonstrate and show you step by step techniques. There’s opportunity for students to ask questions along the way and get feedback from your tutor.
