Olivia York, Flower crown koala, watercolour and acrylic on paper.

This is a mixed media course in watercolour painting and collage, designed for ages 9 to 12. The course is taught by Olivia York, a Melbourne-based artist and illustrator who specialises in watercolour Australiana illustration.

This is a stand alone 3 hour masterclass, which focuses on the development of key foundational techniques for watercolour and collage. The children will then be supported whilst creating their own Australian animal character in watercolour, wearing a collaged native flowercrown.

Suitable for all skill levels, this class is a good balance of the technical and creative. Olivia strives to help build creative confidence, because every child is an artist!

We maintain small class sizes to ensure Olivia can offer one-on-one tuition for each student.

Students will experiment with techniques that are discussed and demonstrated during class and will have the opportunity to use them in an artwork they create.

Olivia York is a Melbourne-based artist, illustrator and Australiana enthusiast. She creates witty and whimsical watercolour illustrations, inspired by our Australian flora and fauna. Her illustrations have so far adorned food trucks, feature walls, childrens books, clothing, packaging and homewares.

Her products have been featured in several tv shows, books and magazines including Better Homes and Gardens, Frankie magazine and Koala (Thames & Hudson). Olivia has collaborated with such brands as House, Lalaland, Nutella and Auspost.
