Watercolour Classes Brisbane

Relax in beautiful surroundings and enjoy the experience of making art.

Diane is a qualified art teacher (BEd) and practising artist who teaches and demonstrates art using the principles, skills, and techniques of watercolour painting. They are applicable to any subject you want to paint, and you will be able to use them to develop your own unique style of painting, as you progress through the class.

Freehand drawing skills are not essential, and are not taught as part of this class. But, please feel free to either draw freehand, or trace the drawings you want to use during the course. There are separate drawing classes available, and watercolour students will be given first preference for places in these courses.

You will find painting with watercolour the most expensive and difficult of all painting media, BUT it is the cleanest, very portable and most rewarding method of painting. With patience, perseverance and plenty of practice, you too can produce wonderful watercolours!
