Wonderful Watercolours Weekend Workshop

Saturday 10th-Sunday 11th April 2021

Jan Thomson is a talented watercolour artist from Nelson Lakes. She loves to get out and paint – capturing light and mood and especially enjoys painting New Zealand landscapes – the beautiful alpine environs from the birds, plants and mountains which surround her home.

This two day workshop is suitable for beginners, and also for people who haven’t painted for awhile – taking them back over the basics, and refreshing their skills. The workshop will cover different watercolour techniques and materials on the first day, then participants will learn how to put it all together to create a painting on day two.

Feedback from some of Jan’s recent workshops:
“I just want to say what a great weekend it was. I can say without reservation that I found your class more constructive and helpful than any other art class that I have attended."
