Another day, another boozy art class. Brisbanites, we'd have a problem if combining alcohol and creativity wasn't the perfect way to unwind. After Cork & Chroma, Boozy Board Art, Botanical Drawing with Drinks, Pub Painting and Pastels & Plonk comes Watercolour & Wine. The city's vino lovers really should be quite the Picassos by now.
In this Work-Shop session, which takes place at the drink-friendly time of 6.30pm on October 6, attendees will learn the basics of painting with watercolours, all with a glass of wine in their hand. Don't worry, you won't have to literally keep a brush in one mitt and a beverage in the other — unless you want to.
Taught by artist Vanessa Wallace, each class includes her tips — including observation skills, methods of drawing and composition, and, of course, a primer in applying watercolours — plus all the supplies and materials you'll need on the day, and grapey drinks. If you've never tried your hand before, it's a relaxed way to give it a go. If you're a more seasoned watercolour fiend, it's a fun way to refresh your skills.
