Helen's botanical & watercolour art courses for 2017


4-Jan-17: Its a hot start to the new year here in Australia. Helen is having a BIG clean out of her studio. Long overdue. Then some more gardening, catching up with friends before the start of Februrary when another teaching year begins.

6-Mar-17: The artistic year is in full swing. Helen has begun her monthly painting workshops in Bungendore and has been busily painting for Sydney Botanica 2017. The weather seems to be cooling down slowly as we enter Autumn.

6-Apr-17: Helen now has two workshops planned for 2017. The first is a 4 day Botanical workshop in April and the second a Painting Birds workshop in September (dates pending). The glorious colours of Autumn are just beginning to show.

15-Jun-17: We have had a glorious calm Autumn and the colours were stunning right into early June. Helen has moved her studio from our house to a purpose built sunny studio shack on our rural property.

News 5-Sep-17: Winter still lingers with snow flurries and -3C windchill. After 21 years in our present abode and 40 years living on rural acres we are downsizing  to a lovely 1940s mini house in an older part of Queanbeyan. We will be adding on a studio for Helen. Also, after teaching art in Bungendore for 25 plus years Helen has decided its time to retire from her regular monthly classes at the end of this year. She will give the occasional 4 day workshop on Birds and Botanical painting in Bungendore and Bowral.
