Join watercolour artist Stevie Driscoll as she shows you how to create your own unique, swirling galaxy paintings. Use the professional-quality tools she uses in her own work and get step-by-step guidance on some of the fundamentals of watercolour painting. You'll get everything you need to make 4 different paintings, to keep as a set for yourself or to give as gifts!
Level of Instruction:
This workshop is suitable for both complete beginners as well as those with some painting experience. We start with a brief introduction to basic watercolour techniques and principals to get everyone on the same page. Even if you don't think you're artistic, the galaxy paintings are specifically designed with beginners in mind. The free-flowing nebulas of colour give you space for play and exploration, allowing you to give up a little control and let the unpredictable nature of watercolours work its magic.
What to Bring:
All you need to bring is yourself! Everything is provided for you during the workshop. You can bring a smock or apron if you like, but watercolour isn't actually very messy. (One of its biggest perks!)
Home to the Society of Beer Drinking Ladies, this fun new space is cute and cozy but with enough space to stretch out in. We'll be set up in their large back room, but feel free to pop into the cash bar at the front for a coffee or beer!
About the Instructor:
Stevie Driscoll is a graphic designer and artist. After years of working behind a screen, she craved an artistic outlet where she got to work with her hands and play with paper and paint instead of just pixels. What was once a hobby, her watercolour painting and hand lettering artwork has blossomed into Mumbleweeds, a colourful line of paper goods and gifts. Follow @Mumbleweeds for Stevie's paintings and to get a glimpse of previous workshops.
