Fabulous Fairy Wren
Sat 23 September at 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm$65.00
In this workshop you will learn to draw, design and paint your own cute little finch, wren or robin sitting in her nest on canvas!
Be inspired by our blue wren or choose your own colours and pattern and create your own masterpiece, the choice is yours!
Learn the process of canvas painting, elements of art and techniques to create a straw/stick nest and feathery texture in a fun and creative studio environment. Artwork created on 30cmx40cm stretched canvas.
No experience is necessary, Leanne will teach you all you need to know with simple step-by-step, face-to-face instruction. Everything you need to create your original masterpiece is included. Just bring an old shirt or apron with you to protect your clothing.
