Watercolour Painting – Colourful Animals NEW

Jenessa King beg

This workshop begins with a mini tour for kids of Shaun Tan’s current ‘Tales from the Inner City-The Original Paintings’ exhibition at FAC. In his paintings, Tan employs animals to create wondrous, and sometimes surreal tales of cities we live in.

Under the guidance of local artist Jenessa King, create your own colourful artwork using kid friendly watercolour paints. Learn how to paint shape and form, giving your creation features and a colourful world to live in.
