It's time to get your paint on !!  Bring a friend or come along solo and make some new ones on the day. Returning to Present Story is local artist Liana Kappelle, and in this 3 hour workshop you will learn to paint beautiful Australian botanicals and share a cup of tea, or a glass or two of sparkling.  

This workshop will be filled with demonstrations, experimentation and the ability to play with Liana’s private collection of art supplies. You will leave this workshop with your own work of art you’ll be proud to show off!

This workshop will include lessons on the properties of watercolour paint, brushwork, texturing techniques, colour mixing and advice on the vast amount of art supplies available out there. Using the various techniques you will be shown during the class you will work from a variety of still life objects and reference material to create your own unique composition.

Discover a new hobby, meet new people, and discover why watercolour is such a popular and fun medium to work with, all with a glass of bubbles in hand if you so desire ! We also provide herbal teas, or the best coffee around is available from The Spot Cafe next door. We hope you can join us.
