Olivia will introduce students to basic watercolour painting techniques such as colour mixing, laying washes, colour glazing, and blooming. Suitable for all skill levels, this class is an opportunity for families and friends to be creative together. 

Olivia will also discuss the basic materials and equipment of watercolour such as a selection of basic colours in pans or tubes, brushes, watercolour papers, palettes and accessories.

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