What you’ll Get: paper, paint and other materials if you wish; images and botanical materials for inspiration; an information sheet to take home; tea, coffee and snacks to energize you throughout the class.

What you need to bring: a can-do attitude and an open mind. We’ll provide all the materials, but feel free to bring your own if you have something you’d like to practice with.

COVID 19 UPDATE: We are adhering strictly to government regulations and gathering limitations. All participants will be seated at a further distance from each other than usual to accommodate.

About the Workshop: Join gallery director and practicing abstract artist Madeline Young for a relaxing 3 hour workshop of abstract watercolour painting. This workshop is designed to be a stress-free session of learning and experimentation for beginners as well as those who have some experience. Join with like minded people in an inspiring and intimate setting and take some time out for yourself.

Madeline will be guiding you through some basic abstraction techniques to get you warmed up to create your own pieces. This class focuses on the process rather than the outcome. We’ll start with some basic watercolour techniques followed by some composition and mark-making exercises with plenty of time at the end to experiment with your new-found skills.
