Watercolour classes with Hettie Rowley

Ever wanted to join an art class and develop your talent? My classes are targeted at keen beginners and intermediate level artists. They are structured but informal and will allow you to develop at your own pace. The next classes will begin 7th February 2013 (one per week on Thursday evenings for seven weeks) at the Blend(er) Gallery in Joondalup, Perth. These classes will focus mainly on the figure in a variety of settings. In addition, students will be instructed in the drawing techniques that are a recommended preparation for watercolor work, including a life-session with a model.

Watercolour Workshop with Renata Wright February, April

Master the art of watercolour painting with the help of an award winning artist Renata Wright. These beginners’ classes will be held in the friendly environment of the blend(er).

Classes are aimed at beginners as well as ongoing students. The classes are mixed as each person develops at their own pace. More capable students are often a great inspiration to the beginners.

Each workshop runs for 7 weeks. Here are the dates:

Tuesdays: 6.30 pm – 9.00pm
05th, 12th, 19th, and 26th February. 2nd, 09th and 23rd of April
