Helen's botanical & watercolour art courses for 2019

Botanical Illustration 5 day workshop       15 - 19 April 2019

News 1-Jan-19:  Rain came in mid December. 70mm to quench the bone dry soils. It was much needed. Helen’s new small studio renovation of the garage is underway. Once finished it will be approximately half the floor area of her previous commodious studio. Helen is painting some botanical commissions and was painting Magpies and Blue wrens madly for Christmas sales at the Bungendore Woodworks gallery.

1-Mar-19:  Helen is currently painting for Sydney Botanica and a small number of commissions she has to hand. Her 5 day Botanical Illustration workshop in April is filling up steadily. Her new studio has now been clad and is weather proof. 

News 17-Apr-19  Helen’s last workshop after 20 odd years of teaching Botanical art is going well in the dear old Bungendore School of Arts. Helen is retiring from teaching art with a number of her students having now turned professional artists themselves. Its been a privilege to have taught art for such a long time. Helen’s new studio will be commissioned next week. A new home to splash and dash with watercolour paints.

News 5-May-19  Helen’s last workshop after 22 years of teaching Botanical art was a great success. Everyone painted furiously and there were smiles and gigles going on right through the 5 days. A wonderful last teching experience for Helen.
