Birdy – Watercolour Workshop [ONLINE]

January 20 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Virtual Event
Online Watercolour Workshop as a Livestream Event! Ideal for Beginners – all skill levels welcome. Materials available for order.
Be part of this Livestream watercolour workshop event, where you will learn how to paint with watercolour using simple and easy techniques. Taught by artist, Andrea Elena, and designed with beginners in mind, this workshop is ideal for those looking to delve into the whimsical possibilities of watercolour painting. You will be guided on how to paint this piece with step-by-step demonstrations, practice exercises, tips and more. You will also have the option to get additional feedback and support via Zoom in real time through 5-10 minutes breakout sessions with the instructor. All workshops are open, creative spaces, with a supportive vibe – all skill levels are welcome (including, “I’ve never painted before”). A trace image is provided for those who prefer not to free-hand the drawing (where applicable). Materials are available for order, please see below for more information.

Upon registering, you will get an automatically generated email with the “Online Event Page” link – this is where you will be able to access the image and trace outline for this workshop. Please see the “accessing the event” section below for more details, and important information.
Access to the event is through Eventbrite itself. You need to authenticate your ticket in order to access the event’s “Online Event Page” within Eventbrite. After you register, you will receive an email from Eventbrite, and in that email there will be an orange button. You must access the event by clicking on that button and allowing Eventbrite to authenticate your email address that you purchased the ticket with (they may ask you to “create an account” if they don’t automatically detect your email – please do this as it is the only way you can access the event). If you do not see this email immediately after registering, please check your spam/junk folder. You will get a similar email again 2 hours prior to the event (with the same orange button).
Within the “Online Event Page” you will find the trace image for this event. This is also where the livestream will be seen from (but only once it is live – about 10 minutes before the start of the event).
You are strongly advised to make sure you can access the Online Event Page well in advance of the workshop so you can work out any technical issues, and contact the organizer if you experience problems, so they can be resolved in a timely fashion. Please try it at least 1-2 days before the event itself. Contacting the organizer right before the workshop is about to begin (or has already started) is likely to result in slow or delayed responses. You are responsible for ensuring that you can access the event in advance – no refunds, credits, or recordings will be provided in lieu for inability to access the event.
