About This Class

Learn that painting with watercolours isn't hard?  RELAX and PLAY and gain the CONFIDENCE to start to paint.

Many people would like to make art by painting, but many don't even try in their adult years because they 'believe' that they don't have a talent, don't know any technical stuff and more likely than not, somewhere along the line somebody told them they weren't any good at it !

So this created a belief which has limited them from enjoying a fun, enlightening, soothing and expressive creative pursuit.

Get ready to change that belief and enjoy painting for it's own sake through this non threatening and friendly 'play - cedure'.

With no one looking over your shoulder and no expectations you will find you are learning through play and gaining the confidence to do more. Most of all just enjoy doing it.

Please read the attached PDF where I explain more about how and why I have created these classes.

Enjoy your painting Nicola

Do one of my courses and you will feel as if I am in the room with you every step of the way.

Here's a bit about me.
