The single-visit workshop
If you'll like to try your hand at watercolour and have a splash, join one of our single-visit workshop and go home with a colourful creations done in, what I call, the wet-on-wet quick wash watercolour techniques with close guidance. All materials are provided in studio use. You'll go home with a A4 size artwork.

The Open-Studio Visits
Learn in a welcoming and supportive atmosphere where there is non-interference in your creative process. You'll engage in art-making alongside others who are seeking for specific guidance and instructional aids. Bring your own art materials. What is provided- use of amenities, drinks and refreshments. Botanical subjects are provided.

Class schedule:
Class takes place every Friday and Saturday mornings. There are also specially-themed workshops, so look out for them in the class schedule. This course is tailored-made to be flexible to accommodate to your travels and other commitments. The class size is small and I'm attentive to everyone's progress each time in class. So if you miss a class, I'll take you through to where you left off.

Duration of class: 2.5 hours. You can choose to attend class according to your schedule. Learning is flexible and tailor-made to your individual needs.

Location: You'll be painting in a cozy and natural light-filled art studio in a heritage shophouse facing a open-air courtyard filled with tropical greenery, and also chance to visit other collaborative studios. Refreshments and soothing music will accompany your practice here.

Is it for beginners?: This class is aimed at absolute beginners and anyone who wants to learn about watercolour with in-depth guidance and tips to improve your work. The aim is to teach you how to draw and paint your favourite subjects and you'll be able to see how your art progresses with the close guidance and constant practice.

What you’ll bring home: For single session of class, you'll get to bring home an A5 botanical watercolour artwork in a 300gm hi-quality paper. For guests who signed up for the 4-class art package, you’ll get a starter-kit of the finest selection of watercolour materials prepared for you to bring home, a brush and a block of A5 300gm paper. Most of the time, you'll also get to bring home the flowers that are freshly selected for you. We almost always work with high-quality tube of watercolour paint from Winsor & Newton, Daniel Smith, Daler-Rowney Artist Series and Schminke.

Class vacancy: 6-8 guests. Class size is deliberately kept small so that you get individualised attention on how to improve on your techniques and guided step-by-step instructions on how to to draw and paint in class each time.
