About the tutor:

Eraine McArthur is a practicing artist studying watercolour under the renowned natural history artist and NatureArt Lab tutor, Lesley Wallington. Eraine turned to art to manage chronic pain, and has learnt about connection to “self” through art, and its capacity to reduce stress and help those with trauma & PTSD.  Eraine reinvigorated her appreciation for natural history during trips to the South Pacific region over a 30-year career as a nurse in the Australian Army.

Eraine tutors the beginner watercolour group at NatureArt Lab in Canberra and enjoys connecting with others in our community who find inspiration in the natural world. She is also supporting Veterans and children through her interests in Art Therapy. Eraine has exhibited her artwork in Canberra, including at Strathnairn Gallery.

Through a series of enjoyable exercises, swatch experiments and projects students will learn about paints, brushes and papers, the different properties of pigments and a series of techniques for applying watercolour paint to paper. Each week you will learn a new skill and technique to be added to your 'toolbox' for use with your watercolour art practice.
