Paint & Create Painting Classes
Monday 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm AEST - Once a Month (2 hrs online)
Welcome to our online monthly painting classes A place where you can build on your painting skills in a supportive community while adding some creativity and fun into your life!
Suitable for absolute beginners, painting enthusiasts and those looking to rekindle their love for oils, you’ll be guided by Heather Bradbury to complete one painting in a single ZOOM class. (Completed paintings are 8x10inch)
Heather makes it so easy that anyone can do it!
Whether you're 12 or 100, you’re welcome to join along!
Each class will feature a different reference photo! Animals, water, landscapes, micro nature – we’ll do it all (check out the images in photos on this page and the themes that we’ll complete each month).
When you sign up we’ll send you a gridded-up image a few days before class. That way you can easily rule up your canvas, which makes painting really simple and achievable!
