Group Art Workshops

Workshops for groups, corporations and individuals

WORKSHOPS FOR GROUPS, CORPORATIONS AND INDIVIDUALS

At frequent times during the year, I run weeks of watercolour and drawing workshops at the University of Sydney, Continuing Education and Northern Beaches Community College where I offer fifty years of training and artistic experience to either students at the beginning of their art adventure or already established artists, designers and art teachers.

My relaxed watercolour course and drawing workshop includes a refresher day for those who have not touched a brush or pencil for some time or a basic starter program for people who have never before attempted drawing or painting.

Over many hours of tuition you will discover or reinstate the talent you knew you had or forgotten how accomplished you once were.

Delicate yet dynamic, watercolour is a soft and expressive medium, and the perfect way to capture nature’s extraordinary colour palette. This intensive week-long course takes you on a step-by-step journey through the basic skills and techniques of watercolour painting. By the end of the week you’ll have paintings that you’ll be proud to display, as well as a new means of artistic expression! A Week of Watercolour is appropriate for both new and returning participants.
