The subjects for the next set of youth watercolour paintings will be the Monarch butterfly and four subjects inspired after seeing the Rita Angus exhibition now showing at Te Papa recently. For more info or to book, please follow https://bookwhen.com/artspace
Local artist and experienced tutor, Alfred Memelink, will guide youth through their own watercolour painting in a fun and friendly environment in a wonderful classroom overlooking the sea. No previous art experience is required - these workshops are suitable for both beginners and also more experienced artists who would like to fine-tune their skills and style. No need to worry about drawing as the painting outlines will already be drawn out for you so that we can focus on the joys of watercolour painting in a relaxed and enjoyable, step-by-step procedure.
$25 includes all materials supplied, (generously subsidized by Watercolour New Zealand Inc). Just drop your youth off then pick them up again two hours later when they'll show you their finished masterpiece with a beaming smile of creative satisfaction.
There are generally two, 2-hour classes for youth each day, a morning class (10am – 12) suitable for youth aged 7 – 11 and an afternoon class (1pm – 3pm) more suitable for ages 12 – 18. However there is flexibility to allow friends and siblings to paint together if desired if they don't fit into this age group. Some youth classes may be combined, ie for ages 7 – 18. There are also Wine & Watercolour twilight painting evenings for adults which are also ideal for group parties and work social events for which vaccination passes are required.
