For February, our focus is on Watercolour tuition and we’re pleased to present the works of renowned art teachers; Terry Jarvis, Kasey Sealy and Joe Cartwright. These very successful professional artists generously offer their knowledge to help their students master this beautiful but sometimes unforgiving medium.

Each of these highly sought after teachers offer excellent tuition through workshops, demonstrations and painting holidays. Expert individual guidance is given in every aspect covering colour, composition, special effects and so much more to help students quickly develop their skills.
Whether you’re a beginner or at an advanced level, if you’re passionate about art, consider an art holiday with these award-winning artists. There’s a range of fabulous locations to choose from throughout Australia and overseas.
