ONLINE WATERCOLOUR CLASSES

with Dayna-Gay Tate

the heart

I teach workshops and classes because I believe in the power of creativity to release you from fear, and the lie that creativity "is for the artists, the select special ones" ––OH HECK NO. Not on my watch.

I teach because I believe in the power of play––to bring rest, and even healing, to your often tired heart and mind.

the why

so why watercolour?

 

1 – IT'S A WHACKLOAD OF FUN

2 – it's one of the more economical art forms

3 – a little paint goes a loooooong way (we're talking years, people)

4 – it's kid-friendly, pretty neat (unless you're jackson pollock), and easy to clean

5 – it's compact (I travel all around the world with my painting kit!)

convinced yet?

you know you want to.

the how

The live courses have finished but you can still purchase access to the recordings, making it fully customisable according to what you'd like to learn

 

Due to the group nature of the recorded classes, you will still feel like you are in the live class with the other students and you can gain extra insight from their questions!

 

There are two types of classes: TUTORIAL + PAINT–ALONG

 

See below for a detailed explanation of what each class entails.

You will get link access to your chosen classes for 4 weeks, so you can watch in your own time. *These will not be downloadable
