Join Jo Jago (Jo Jago Art) at the Wanaka Arts Centre for a relaxed, fun afterschool watercolour painting class this term.
Classes are small to ensure personal attention for everyone. Recommended for ages 8 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.com are 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"
