Are you a nature lover and curious to explore the wonders of our natural world creatively? YES, then join us for a very special workshop with Canberra based natural history illustrator, Bonnie Koopmans. Bonnie completed a degree in Natural History Illustration at the University of Newcastle and loves all aspects of nature.
Bonnie will be back in Newcastle for a one-off workshop where she will step you through the process of creating your own 'Birds in Watercolour'. In this workshop Bonnie will provide a booklet with information about both watercolours and birds, and 3 bird portrait templates to work from (if you are a confident drawer there will be an option for you to draw your own). You'll also look at various watercolour techniques and have a chance to practice before using them to create a final watercolour painting.
In this workshop the price includes a watercolour kit valued at $35 so you don't need to bring any materials on the day.This workshop welcomes all skill levels:)
This is a 4 hour intensive workshop with guided expert tuition.
A watercolour kit valued at $35 including 4 Winsor and Newton artist colours, 2 taklon brushes, and 2 A5 sheets of cotton watercolour paper - one for testing colours/practice and one for a final piece.
What to bring:
BYO snacks and water bottle but, beware, you might find yourself so absorbed in the workshop that you forget to eat:)
