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.

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...
