Art Nights | Online | Watercolour Seashells with Monika Diak


Does lockdown have you dreaming of the seashore? Sand between your toes, a salty breeze ruffling your hair, admiring the colourful shells along the beach? Join this fun class aimed at beginners and more experienced painters alike, where we will explore a range of colourful shells and coral patterns in watercolours.

Sea Shells are great simple shapes that, when added with finer details like intricate textures, ridges, undertones and shades, students of all levels can create a beautiful and realistic interpretation.

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.

What you will achieve

Students will:

  • Gain a practical understanding of watercolour techniques, watercolour mixing and blending techniques.
  • Understand how to observe light and shade in still-life objects to create a realistic interpretation
  • Develop your artistic approach to seashells. By the end of the workshop, students will create multiple watercolour seashells.
