This is going to be a full day of wonderful watercolour adventures designed to allow for the unique flow of creativity from novices to the more experienced artists.

The cost per person is R130 and participants to please bring their own lunch and snacks to keep their energy levels up.  Chocolate is always a good idea.  Hmmmm! and drinking water.

The workshop will begin at 9:30’ish and will be a mix of demonstration time – learning some fun techniques – and work time.  Please bring your art supplies and view the recommendations for colours to please bring along as this will help us with the first exercise.
