THIS MONTH- Fun Intro to Painting for Adults with Zoe Eley!

Come and enjoy a casual, fun evening still-life, watercolour workshop and create a portrait of a CUTE PARTY ANIMAL to take home.

Together we will work through a number of introductory watercolour techniques (including lots of problem solving tips and tricks) to go from a blank piece of paper to an informed, balanced and detailed picture of your chosen party animal for you to take home in the form of a card or illustrated, animal portrait.

Zoe will provide everything you need, including party animal models.

Please come!

Zoe Eley (known also as @z.harriet on the gram) is a professional illustrator and photographer based in Melbourne. The proud parent of the world's most wild Jack Russell named Gully, and a much more peaceful honey called Lucy.

COST: $20 members/$25 non-members [bring cash on the night]

RSVP: Email belgrave.playgroup@gmail.com by July 14.

BYO snacks and drinks if you wish. Hot drinks provided.
