How it works

Get ready to explore your creative voice! In this 1.5 hour art class each individual will be encouraged to learn the basics of drawing and watercolour while adding their own personal spin on their painting. Experience the enjoyment of working with two mediums that that repel each other yet result in a beautiful creation. I supply everything needed to complete your own masterpiece. Each attendee will receive a kit composed of artist materials.

The class starts with an introduction to the instructor and guidance on station set up. I will walk attendees through each step, ensuring participants feel confident using the materials and have fun throughout the process. There is always time for questions and extra help, so that everyone leaves with a finished piece of art. Show up with the intention to have fun in a relaxing environment with a drink or two. This event can ship to Canada and the US.
