Macaw Watercolour Workshop with Sue Battis

Saturday 17th September 2022 10.30am – 12.30pm


About this event

Macaw’s have very distinctive markings, with a mixture of hard beak and soft feathers. This will help you learn how to create a striking painting with a lot of contrast, and definition. Reproduced using a reference photo, with permission of Amanda K Gribben.

You will also learn how to best use the materials provided, while sharing a few relaxing hours with other creative people.

At the end of the class, you will take away your own painting masterpiece.

Small class size, allow for more attention to participants from the teacher in a COVID Safe environment. All art materials used in the workshop will be provided. This workshop is suited for beginners to medium skill levels.

When you book a workshop, you will also get an additional 10% off art supplies from Eckersley’s on the day of the workshop.


Blue Macaw Painting Workshop


Meet the artist:

Sue Battis studied art at QCA and learned watercolour painting and design and graduated after 3 years of study. Sue resumed her love of painting several years ago, after attending classes and getting to know other artists in Brisbane. She finds it relaxing and meditative. Sue began teaching drawing and painting at Scattered Arts Gallery, located at Camp Hill. She also has her work available for purchase through Manly Harbour Gallery and Art House at Bowen Hills and was invited to join in the opening of Kaye West Studios also at Camp Hill in August last year.

Over the last few years, she has created a range of archival reproductions of her artwork which you can discover on her Esty Store, Sue Battis Art
