The only thing that can possible make two hours of messy, creative fun with the ray of sunshine that is Sally Conwell better is wine. So that's what we give you.
You can be a complete beginner or maybe you've got some prior painting experience. No matter, you will have a blast at this Friday night class that will teach you the practical skills and techniques used in watercolour painting, along to a killer playlist, lots of laughs and 2 glasses of red wine from our brothers from another mother, Cake Wines.
Students will learn about the specific properties of watercolour paint, and develop practical skills and techniques in paint application, brush-work, colour mixing, rendering light and shade, tonal value, and design in watercolour painting.
By the end of the class, students will have completed one of their own watercolour paintings, and be able to take their new skills to continue developing in their own style, in this particular medium.
About Sally Conwell
From a young age in the suburbs of South Sydney, Sally was busy getting paint on her mothers carpet. Before the age of 22 she had completed two scholarship residencies in France, and launched a bizarre range of greeting cards that make very little sense, under the name Sit Still Sally.
She can’t actually sit still, and each work is different from the last. Sally completed studies in Fine Arts at the College of Fine Arts, with a focus on oils and watercolours, and continues to work as a practising, emerging artist in Sydney’s inner west.
With any time left over, she likes to dabble in the world of illustration, design, and other crafty things, inspired by everything nonsensical, colourful and wonderful.
