IN-PERSON ART WORKSHOPS
Ruby Tuesday Workshops are the perfect excuse to take some time-out for yourself, to relax and dabble in something creative.
Throughout my workshops we explore the beautiful medium of watercolour painting, in an easy and laid-back way - my classes are absolutely perfect beginners, no experience is necessary!
When I started, I had no idea what I was doing...
You can probably relate to this... when I got started with watercolour (over 10 years ago!), I had absolutely no idea what I was doing!
Now, let's rewind just a li'l bit (this is relevant I promise!)...I became a mum when I was 15 - my eldest son was born in the school holidays between grade nine and grade 10.
As you can imagine, life was hectic!
Between finishing high school, navigating parenthood, trying to maintain friendships and alllll that, I didn't have much time (or money!) for hobbies.
But, that's where watercolour comes in!
I didn't know what supplies I needed (and that I wasn't supposed to be painting on photocopy paper, oops!).
So, when I got started with watercolour I had no idea what I was doing - I didn't know what supplies I needed (or that I wasn't supposed to be painting on photocopy paper!).
In fact, the paints I was using were $2 from the supermarket, aaaand they technically belonged to my toddler!
I didn't know what watercolour techniques there even were, so I know didn't what I needed to learn, let alone how to learn it. But, nonetheless, one day I picked up those crappy $2 paints and just had a play/dabbled with painting after my son had gone to bed.
And, it was amazing, it was a really lovely way to relax and unwind and just muck around, even though I had NO idea what I was doing.
Eventually upgraded and bought some brushes and paint for myself, and actual watercolour paper (aka not printer paper).
I spent almost every night when I wasn't studying sitting at the table with my laptop set up, watching The New Girl on DVD, just practicing and mucking around.
I'd try to reverse engineer how things were done, but looking at other people’s work, experimenting and seeing what happened! It took me, well, ages!
But, over time (with lotssss of trial and error, and some YouTube tutorials/library books to help along the way) I improved, and even (somehow!?) started teaching watercolour to people just like you!
WHY am I telling you this?!
I got started because I wanted something just for me, to help me unwind and relax - and now I'm helping you do the same!
Do you wanna learn watercolour, but one (or more) of these thoughts have held you back?!
- you're scared you won't be good at painting
- you don't think you're creative (e.g. you can't even draw a stick figure!)
- you've never tried it before (or, not since school) and you have no idea where to start
Think of me as your Watercolour Fairy Godmother!
Well, I'm here to help!
Watercolour doesn't have to be scary and intimidating - even if you've NEVER tried it before - I make it really easy and simple (I even encourage you to be messy!).
By the end of this course you'll be able to:
paint watercolour leaves and flowers with confidence, and,
you'll have a creative hobby to help you relax and unwind and do something just for YOU!
But really, the fact you'll know how to paint beautiful watercolour pieces (that you can frame and hang on the wall!) is almost just an added bonus!!!
Because the process of playing and experimenting with watercolour is a huge win in itself, and an incredible way to recharge and unwind.
