Join Jo Jago (Jo Jago Art) at the Wanaka Arts Centre for a relaxed, fun after school watercolour painting class this term.
Classes are small to ensure personal attention for everyone. Recommended for ages 7 and up. Jo likes to get to know the young people in her classes and focuses on teaching watercolour skills in a subtle and fun way by doing paintings that specifically embrace the children's interests. For this reason, Jo loves it if her students bring along some examples of watercolour paintings or styles they would like to learn or just paintings that they like (www.pinterest.com&www.instagram.comare awesome resources for this)
"Yes I can paint beautiful landscapes, and it is probably criminal not to living in Wanaka. But what I enjoy the most is painting things that are a little quirky and more illustration based. A space rocket, a steampunk scene with a rabbit underground having a birthday party or a dog with sunglasses on and other fun things. I love the joy on people's faces when they see my art in this style, young & old, as they are taken into a fun, playful world that takes them to a state of childhood happiness" Jo Jago

COVID-19 TRAFFIC LIGHT SYSTEM - from the Wanaka Arts Centre
"It is sad to say that we have come to a traffic light system for New Zealand to fight united against COVID-19.
Because we have children in the facility and vulnerable people the Wanaka Arts Centre is adopting the double vaccination policy to align with the traffic light system. By doing this we are hoping to help minimise the spread of COVID-19. Anyone entering the building will need to be Vaccinated and show their vaccination passport to their tutor. Tenants and people who run workshops in the main room will need to check that all their students or guest’s are vaccinated over the age of 12 years old. Anyone that is not vaccinated will need to advise asap as you will no longer be able to use the facility."
