Known for her relaxed and loose style of watercolour, Artist Dawn Tan will teach you some handy techniques which you can model to your students. During this workshop, we'll be learning all about painting with the magic of watercolours! You will paint some interesting packaged items and discuss creative ways in which one can transform paintings into other objects. A variety of non-traditional techniques will be taught and participants will have fun discovering their own unique style.
