Letting Loose On Your Half-Eaten Lunch!

with Dawn Tan

Suitable for:ALL LEVELS

Session Times Available:FULLY BOOKED OUT

Observation drawings can sometimes be such a thing dull to do…

Why not come spend some time learning how to let loose, have fun and draw creatively!

During this session, Dawn will be sharing some secret ( and achievable ) tricks she uses, when working with watercolours and ink. We’ll spend our time exploring and painting the interesting items in our bags.

Perhaps you might like to focus on packaging painting… think moisturisers, candy wrappers, drink bottles. Or perhaps you’d like to paint your breakfast, coffee cup or half-eaten sandwich! Or keys and money notes would be fun too.

The ideas are endless!
