The Little Red Book of Watercolour
Christine has developed a work book called "The Little Red Book of Watercolour". It describes everything that Christine has learnt about watercolour in her 30 + years with this media. Each workshop in this series explores a different element of watercolour . Topics include Mixing colour, paper, brushes and other tools, creating the illusion of distance, painting on site, painting trees etc. Each class can be taken independantly, there is no pre-requisite, and the information complements any other teachers’ work.

Children?
This class suits adults. If there is enough interest Christine will organise a teenage or children's class, though there are a number of children's art classes in Lismore.

Getting to the workshop, parking.
The workshop is being held at Christine's studio in East Lismore. When you have enrolled we'll send you a mudmap with directions and parking information.
