Please note: this unusual situation we find ourselves in has created the opportunity to offer this live online class. It is a GREAT opportunity to try watercolour, and get into one of Jenny's very popular Absolute Beginner courses which generally have a long waiting list. It is hoped that Jenny's face to face classes will be able to reopen - but we'll not do this until vaccines are readily available and distributed. When classes reopen, students may choose to join Jenny's Collaroy or Narrabeen (Sydney Australia) classes where space available at the appropriate level. Meanwhile, why don't you get started with the online course, and swap to the appropriate term of live classes when they start.
By the end of this Watercolour course Level - YOU:
Will have a thorough knowledge of all main watercolour techniques.

EQUIPMENT: Jenny has very firm ideas on what makes good equipment and what does not. It is highly recommended that you check out Jenny's Equipment list for STAGE 2 via the button below.
You will need the equipment required from Stages 1 AND 2 (about 9 colours, 1-2 brushes, paper & various bits like water container, hair dryer... if you already have equipment and prefer not to buy extra, then that's fine, however PLEASE READ the list and also note my one compulsory item: COMPULSORY PAPER - 2 sheets of Arches 300gsm rough watercolour paper. Note, we use certain colours in our classes, you will need to make your own recipes if you do not own them. You can save a lot of money buying Winsor & Newton Paint online from the PAINT SHOP.
Please check out the button above to obtain the equipment list for this class. Student quality equipment leads to disappointing results, buy artist quality where possible.
