Your Instructor - Jenny Gilchrist

Professional Artist and Teacher.

Hi, I'm Jenny, your instructor.

I have a very successful and established Watercolour Art School on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia: Northern Beaches Watercolour where I teach my four level, structured, face to face watercolor classes. My Live Online Zoom classes and workshops are now more popular than ever, and I've sold my paintings both in Australia and Overseas. I've had 30 years experience painting, but the most satisfaction I get is teaching adult students to paint in this most enigmatic of mediums.

I like a casual and no-pressure attitude to teaching, with a bit of humor tossed in, so that you can concentrate on enjoying the adventure. Join me, you'll be so surprised at what you can do in just a couple of lessons.

Best - you can keep progressing through further levels in the course, finessing your skills and learning new ones. The aim is to get you painting your own, full paintings.

Did they Love it?

(Of course they did.)

"Unbelievable! I had no idea what I was missing out on, I thought I was an intermediate painter, I'm SO glad I started from the start, its made a huge difference to the quality of my painting."

Marie Gunderson

"It's so great to have EVERYTHING at your fingertips, photo references, demonstrations, explanations, and even a virtual critique after every painting, so I can troubleshoot if I've done something wrong! This is hands down the best course I've ever done, and I've tried plenty. Worth every penny. Thanks Jenny."

-Andrea Cooke Levels 2-4

I haven’t done much art / painting since school and I am loving Jenny’s beginner course. I’ve found the classes easy to follow and you can make notes as she is explaining and painting. I’m surprised how quickly I’ve been able to paint really lovely things. Jenny is clear at explaining what to do and is honest and encouraging with her feedback. I’ve booked in for stage 2 already!"

-Katie Jacka

Do I need certain watercolour equipment?

Jenny will definitely suggest the best equipment that will give the best possible results, (we don't want you to waste your time or money!). The paper is the only compulsory item. All other equipment is your choice, but equipment lists are supplied to give the most artist quality results.

What if I have a problem with my painting or want to ask a question?

Jenny will respond to questions. There are two ways to talk to Jenny about your paintings / painting problems. a) in the comments section under most modules of each class - you can even post pictures, and b) in your private and exclusive W2Watercolour Facebook Group (for our students ONLY. ) Here you can post paintings, ask questions, get feedback, make suggestions and enjoy the student community. Please allow time for a response as she is a working mum.

How long will this watercolour course take?

Jenny teaches this exact course in her face to face and Zoom classes. It takes her class about 3 months - once a week for 10 weeks in 2.5 hour classes to follow the class, and paint the exercise, then practice during the week. It will take you as long as you want - the more practice you give yourself the better.

Do we paint all those watercolour paintings on this page?

You do paint some of the top grid are just a few of the 100+ paintings Jenny's students paint over the course, not all in Level 1 however. The other paintings on this page are Jenny's own. You will learn the skills to paint your own paintings.

Is Jenny a good artist?

Judge for yourself. Have a look at Jenny's 'gallery' on her Watercolour School Website: : click on this link: You can also find the student gallery on the same website, these students have been painting 2 years or less.

Is Jenny a good watercolour teacher?

Good question. Some people are great artists and not such great teachers. Some teachers can't paint for quids! You need a good artist AND a good teacher. That's the point after all. Jenny has taught literally hundreds of adult students to paint in watercolour. Her painting school in Sydney is extremely popular and has a waiting list of years. Word of mouth has been the biggest asset. If there is ONE thing Jenny hears most often, it is that she has a knack of 'breaking things down and getting the point across with simplicity and humour." Jenny thinks constructive critisism is what her students want, not just ego stroking. She knows they want to learn, and she thinks EVERYONE can paint and whatever they produce is their art.
