New Intake in 2021

Watercolour Painting Class for Beginners

Announcing the new intake for my Watercolour Class for Beginners in 2021!


We can all agree that 2020 has been a strange and unprecedented year with lockdowns, social distancing and travel restrictions due to the pandemic. Let's bid 2020 good-bye and hope for a better 2021. Do you want to start the new year by learning a new skill? How about watercolour painting?


This class is targeted at beginners who like to learn how to paint in watercolour. I will share with you everything you need to know about watercolour painting from scratch, including what materials to use, painting techniques, colour theory and application, tonal values, composition rules, perspectives and more.

Due to my studio management's social distancing rules, the class size will be limited to max. 5 students per session. It will be a hybrid arrangement which involves watching online demo videos at home and attending studio painting sessions on Saturday. You may choose to come on Saturday morning or afternoon (on first come, first serve basis)

There are 8 lessons altogether. Class fee is $240 for the first four lessons, due upon sign up. The remaining $240 is payable on 1st February.
