Watercolour Botanical Art Classes – 2019 Opportunities

heidi willis_watercolour_botanical_painting class_workshops

Ok, so heres the thing… in 2013 I tried to say no to teaching, but you said yes louder. In 2014 I said NO to the years flying by so fast, but life said NO louder! Just the other day I posted 2018 Watercolour Painting Opportunities on my blog and somehow those are all but been and gone and I am left reeeeeling, to think, it is time to start posting the new painting workshop opportunities for 2019 already… What kind of madness is this thing where time keeps flying by us so damn fast!?! I for one am not a fan of time passing by like it does, but it has been a wonderful year and I am looking forward to the last incredible workshops of 2018 before the year is done, and the exciting 2019 art class calendar of new adventures begins.

Those of you who were fortunate enough to share in the remarkable Cradle Mountain Masterclass week will agree, these are pretty incredible events to be a part of. What an inspiring, unmissably beautiful, special week that was, so beautiful in fact, the painting became quite simply a natural flow from the week of all things important (PS if anyone did happen to track Overland Cam’s number down, please let me know!) Yes, every traveling masterclass is such a unique experience and event, touching hearts and souls in beautiful environments as we share in the unplugging of nature and creativity, of discovering new connections both inner and outer, learning and painting as we go.

Our Cradle Mountain Tasmania Wonderland week

Its all so wonderful, its hard not to be looking forward to the next adventure as we head off to explore the lupine fields of New Zealand with the next awesome group of students in November, set to be one of the most amazing art classes imaginable…. EEEEP SO EXCITING!! Holy cow its going to be so beautiful!

Our New Zealand Event Location

But! Before New Zealand’s adventures I have two beautiful groups to spend time with in Tyalgum and Brisbane in the next few weeks, seeing a close to the fully booked 2018 calendar all too soon. With this in mind 2019 is already starting to book up and so I have created this new blog post about the events coming up for you in the next year. I am only taking a handful on but some are confirmed and partially full already, whilst Ill add others to the list in the coming months for your reference. Keep an eye out for updates, new events and availability, and let us know sooner rather than later if any take your fancy!

I have a range of event styles open for you all, from lower cost events to full luxury overseas experiences that you wont want to miss… all are brilliant, so theres definitely something for everyone.There are no workshop vacancies remaining for the rest of this year, with New Zealand booked out over 6 months prior whilst Japan already has a waiting list before the details have been decided. As I say, these days and opportunities sure do fly by us so fast, so maybe its time to pop your name down and come along for the ride in 2019… of course we’d love to have you join us. *Please note* We are continuing to work on the Japan event until we are TOTALLY confident with every last detail being spot on. This event will likely run in 2020 at this stage.

So at this point I have a couple of events confirmed for the coming year…
