Art Nights | Watercolour Crystals with Monika Diak

If you are interested in holistic health and embracing your creativity, then this watercolour crystal workshop is for you!

Students will explore simple watercolour mixing and blending techniques to achieve delicate shades of harmonious colours, in the form of a crystal.

From cascading wet washes to staccato dry brush effects, watercolours can produce painting effects which no other medium can match. We will explore and recreate the beautiful earthy textures and natural colour blends that make crystals so aesthetically pleasing.

Art Est Art Nights

Welcome to Art Est Art Nights, where you can have a drink, meet like-minded people, and create some art as we keep our studio doors open at night for intimate and casual art workshops.

These workshops have a maximum of 15 students and are structured, so you will go away with a practical understanding of your chosen art form and techniques but they are also relaxed and casual, to allow each student’s own creativity and imagination to shape their final artwork.

Art Est Art Nights invite students to BYO drinks and snacks. Students must be over 18 years of age to participate.

What to expect

  • Students will have an introduction and demonstration into how watercolours behave and practice some blending and mixing techniques through simple exercises
  • Working from a reference piece or their own crystals, students will then look closely at crystal structure and colour (it is clear or opaque, raw or polished etc.), and create their own individual watercolour artwork under the guidance of the tutor.

What you will achieve

  • Gain a practical understanding of watercolour techniques, watercolour mixing and blending techniques
  • Each student to complete their own interpretation of a watercolour Crystal artwork
  • Have some fun with old friends and new friends

Course testimonials:

  • What made this class different to the standard wine and paint nights was the teacher, the medium we used and the theme of crystals. I have not seen a class quite like this one and Monika is a wonderful and attentive teacher. She was incredibly encouraging and the atmosphere was light, fun and suitable for all skill levels. I would highly recommend the class for night out with friends.
