11th August - Introduction to Watercolour workshop

from 75.00

Date: 11th August 2018

Time: 10am-1pm (3 hours)

Location: Level 2 of Sawa Restaurant, 68 Stanley street Darlinghurst

This three hour workshop is a perfect fit for beginning watercolour artists or for those looking to find a different approach to their skills. 

The workshop will start off by going through materials and which brushes and supplies you will need to start with. After this you will not be feeling overwhelmed when choosing art supplies or waste money on buying things you don’t need. 

We will then cover tips and techniques for brush strokes, creating basic shapes, colour theory and blending. Once we’ve gone through this material, we will incorporate structuring basic shapes into florals! Norah will go over which brushes to use in order to form leaves, berries, roses and more! With layering, shading, wet-on-wet painting, and other techniques. 

You can choose to purchase the ticket with watercolour kit or without. We provide quality art materials for you to take home and keep painting after the workshop. You are also welcome to bring your own watercolour supplies, you are highly encouraged to make sure the quality of your materials is of a similar standard. Especially with the paint, it’s easier to understand colour theory if we all use the same colours. If you want to shop everything yourself, I’ve put together this material list for you, click here.
