Weekly Watercolour Classes

at Artsmart in Ethel Street, Seaforth, on Sydney’s Northern Beaches

Guy is endlessly encouraging and dedicated to helping you learn. He demonstrates in every lesson, breaking the subject down into stages for everyone to follow. All aspects of painting in watercolours will be covered over time, including discussion on picture making, colour, composition, and techniques. Guy builds flexibility into the classes to cater for the levels, abilities, and wishes of class members. He also encourages individual direction and technique, and will offer advice and critiques of work brought in to class.
