Not only is watercolour painting a super pretty art form – it’s also really meditive and brings out all those nice, calm feels.

This beginners watercolour class is perfect for both people that have never picked up a brush and those who make art on the regular.

Artist and educator, Emilie, will take you through a series of painting exercises that will involve taking inspo from flowers and leaves to create a series of watercolour images.
