What you'll do

You'll learn the essentials of the best paints, brushes and paper to buy, before moving on to colour mixing and creating expressive brush marks. Once comfortable with your brush you'll be shown some beautiful watercolour techniques, blending and pulling the colours to make an abstract painting. To practice the techniques further, you'll paint some jolly ice lollies and end the session painting a simple and pretty ice cream. There's lots to learn, and you'll take home a set of colour notes along with your paintings. The class is all about enjoying the effects of watercolour, and learning how these techniques can be applied to create simple and colourful paintings. No previous art experience is required, and all ages are welcome from 8 upwards. It's a very relaxed, informal setting, and being a small class of up to 5 everyone gets personalised attention. After the class finishes at 12:30pm, it's over to the ice cream counter where you'll choose a delicious Bears ice cream or shake, to enjoy in the shop or take away.

Michelle

I'm a painter and designer, and live in the neighbourhood of Bears Ice Cream Company. After a career as a scenic painter in the film industry, and later as a graphic designer, I set up a design studio called Roxwell Press, making bespoke wedding stationery and building portraits. My painting style is loose and expressive, using big brush strokes and working with the paint while it's still wet to create lively and colourful paintings. In the class I'll introduce you to some of these fun, easy techniques and how you can use them to make beautiful paintings of your own.

More tips

Some of the paints have staining pigments. Although the class isn't particularly messy, you may find a spot of paint on your clothes, so it's best not to wear your favorite shirt.
