What you will do
2.5 hour class
In this beginners class you'll learn how to paint your own watercolour based on a fresh flower arrangement and will be guided by the wonderfully talented Polly Crossman. The class is also BYOB, with tea / coffee also being provided.
No experience is required, just an interest in learning. Polly will guide you through everything, including colour mixing and mark making, before working on a main piece, painting from life, based on a fresh flower arrangement! You’ll get lots of tips and become more confident in your work, whilst developing your own style. You'll also feel the mindfulness effects of being creative - it is amazing!
Polly Crossman is a London-based illustrator who works with ink, pencil and watercolour to create hand-drawn illustrations of all kinds. From bespoke wedding stationery and maps, to one-off gifts and greetings cards (and everything in between!) – you name it, she’ll draw and paint it! M.Y.O are very excited to have her for this session (she also teaches our modern calligraphy for beginners and illustrated maps of London classes - which have got incredible feedback).
Capacity is limited, to ensure you feel nice, relaxed and get enough guidance. Ahhhhh lovely.
