Private groups & short courses

Curious about how to paint with watercolour but have no idea where to start? Private classes will guide you through the materials and techniques in a more focussed way.

Private groups

Private group workshops are a great way to learn watercolour if you have a smaller group of people. It’s a more intimate way to learn and are limited to five people only.

This style of workshop still covers all the fundamentals of watercolour with a focus on skill development in a more tailored way. I am at your disposal to answer questions and demonstrate tasks!

Hen’s days, workplace team building, end-of-year wind-ups and birthdays are some of the ways that these group workshops have been used.

For larger groups I can create a custom package. Enquire here.

Option 1:
One-off workshop (2 hours)
3 – 5 people
$90 per person

This two-hour workshop is suited to the beginner that wants to enjoy a smaller group workshop with friends or family. Perhaps you’re celebrating a birthday, or want to treat Mum for Mother’s Day? Whatever the occasion, this workshop is a great fun and you’ll walk away with a new skillset – painting with watercolour!

You will be guided through some basic watercolour exercises and to finish, we will paint something that you can hang on your fridge (or possibly frame!).

All materials are supplied and the location is wherever you are! I will happily travel to you within 15km of Mount Gambier. Further travel distances can be quoted prior.

Option 2:
4-week short course (8 hours)
2 – 5 people
From $580 to $1,240

The four-week course is for the beginner who wishes to dive deeper into their watercolour practice. Not only will this course include the same fundamentals as the other workshops types, but you will also touch on drawing, understand the basics of colour theory and use other mediums that will enhance your watercolour work.

The benefit of the four-week course is that you have a chance to go home and practice in between lessons and come back loaded with questions! It is a more in-depth look at watercolour. I am there each week to answer your questions.

Think of this course as therapy for the soul – giving yourself permission to be immersed in art for two hours each week. If you need a reason to consistently catch up with a group of friends, or you prefer to learn with a follow-up approach, then this course is for you.

Pricing:
2 people – $580 ($290 p/p)
3 people – $800 ($266 p/p)
4 people – $1,020 ($255 p/p)
5 people – $1,240 ($248 p/p)

WHAT’S INCLUDED IN A WORKSHOP?

Each workshop offers you an opportunity to explore the medium of watercolour. You will learn the fundamentals through a series of exercises, all of which come together to create a final painting. I will demonstrate everything first, and I always encourage you to ask questions and seek my help if you need.

All materials are supplied for you, so all you have to do is bring yourself and some optimism. Watercolour should not be daunting – in fact, it will probably leave you feeling quite relaxed when you leave.

I have designed these workshops to be the perfect combination of learning and fun. My aim is for you to know enough to continue on at home, and with practice, perfect your skills so that you feel confident.

WORKSHOP FAQs

I haven’t painted since kindergarten. Can I still come?

Of course you can! My workshops are aimed at the absolute beginner, and if you can hold a paintbrush you are ready to come along! I explain my way through the workshop and encourage everyone to ask questions.

Do I need my own materials?

I supply all materials, so the only thing you need to bring is some enthusiasm (and please leave your perfectionism at the door – it stifles creativity)!

Can I get a refund on my classes/workshop if I cannot attend?

This will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Please contact me as soon as you know that you can no longer attend.
