Heaps of fun, and tons more to learn.​ 

This light hearted and fun class  is perfect for students who have either: 
* done the Stage 1-2 course with Jenny before, or
* those with experience in all the watercolour foundation skills. (New students are welcome providing you have foundation skills). 
We'll learn more about methods and styles and learn new techniques so you can build on your knowledge. (no Basics.)  The aim of this class is to have fun and enjoy painting while learning some serious stuff along the way.  This class is NOT SUITABLE for absolute beginners as we do not revisit any application method or equipment.  Your tutor is experienced teacher and artist Jenny Gilchrist.  You'll be painting from the first lesson, and you'll be so surprised at what you can accomplish. Please come to class with all your Stage 1,2 and 3 equipment, (there are plenty of options for you to keep the price down, please bring compulsory paper and artist quality paint.) and if you have any trouble obtaining it, see the Art Shop recommendations in the equipment list.  More Questions?  Contact Jenny at or use the contact button in the top menu. 

If you have any questions about whether it would fit your 'skill' level, check out our new quiz under the 'classes' tab.  Don't ever be worried that you're 'not good enough'.  That's what classes are all about!!!  Discuss it with me if you remain unsure.
