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.

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 LEVEL 3 via the button below.
You will need EQUIPMENT FROM LEVELS1,2 and 3 which comprises of 9 colours, 1-3 brushes, paper and v arious bits like water container, hair dryer... BUT 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. Please ensure you check the button above, for the colours we WILL REQUIRE in Stage 3. We have all the Winsor and Newton brand colour SUPER CHEAP in our PAINT STORE.
