CAN I JOIN?
If you have completed Stages 1-4 of Jenny's course, then you can join the VIP's for free while we are on Zoom.
STAGE 5 - If you are an NBW full course graduate from ANY venue ( stages 1-4) then this is for you. Now is the time to spread your sable 'wings' and enjoy some individual painting of subjects of your choice. For Students who prefer to have a subject suggested - we have an expanding library of enjoyable and varied watercolour subjects ready for you to paint.
You have learned techniques to set you up for a life of enjoyable watercolour painting. Practice makes perfect, and brush-mileage is an imperative part of your painting experience, whether it's exercises, small designs or full-on painted artworks. You can paint what you want, in the style you want, the size you prefer, and explore!
This 2.5 hour group is for watercolour painters who would like to paint their own projects AND continue to learn more with tutor Jenny ready to lend a hand with tips and techniques where necessary.

EQUIPMENT: Students must supply their own equipment (paint, brushes, paper and tools etc.) and subject. Jenny Recommends artist quality equipment. An equipment list can be found on this website if desired.
Please Note Ts & Cs - Please do not ask for further discounted/shortened terms. We cannot offer refunds, credits or makeups for missed weeks after term start date due to your individual circumstances. (holidays, illness, work etc.) Please check terms and conditions pages for full details and book carefully choosing the appropriate option above.
Students must have their own subject to paint every week, - tip - look on Jenny's Pinterest for ideas -https://www.pinterest.com.au/northernbeacheswatercolour/painters-group-subject-library/
All other painting equipment will be your choice.
You will be able to watch and enjoy all the demonstrations since you'll be able to hear and see them easily. A great way to repeat a class! There is nothing like revision of the basic skills to remind you of what you've already forgotten!!
Its hard to remember everything after being told only once, sometimes the smallest thing can make the biggest difference. Join us, and sneak a full revision lesson in, while painting your own thing!!
PRICE? Free. As you have allowed me to enjoy your company for so long, you deserve it!! (Free while we are on zoom.)
THE SUBJECT FOLDER: Unfortunately I don't have all the folder ideas online, however you can find lots of my ideas on pinterest above. I made a special folder for you called "Painter's Group Subject Libary" It there on my Northern Beaches Watercolour Pinterest and you can print out, or have the picture on another screen to paint.
Painters are able to continue their watercolour journey, painting subjects that they are more 'in tune' with, often giving a much more pleasing result.
Students each week, either get THEIR OWN SUBJECT TO PAINT -from photos, imagination, past NBW 'homeworks', ideas out of books, your own objects (flowers etc) still life, whatever you choose - you paint your own choice of subjects OR choose out of our pinterest library.
When tutor is able, one-on-one assistance if desired, to achieve the best out of your artwork. Jenny will try to catch up with you at least once during the class, and again later.
Note: Whilst early lessons of new Stage 1 are occurring, tutor may not be able to spend as much time as normal.
Tutor will occasionally be able to give quick demonstrations to help you achieve your result. (Dependant on available time).
As we are on Zoom, it is much harder for Jenny to converse with you, and see what you are doing. However, I encourage you to email me (or post on facebook) a picture of your work, whether finished or not, for critique and tips. This will occur only once, and cannot be a conversation, simply a critique within the week following that lesson.
