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 choose your own level in this course, changing up or down after contact with me, enjoying extra workshops, and tutorials,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, and there's silly little me, STILL enjoying it myself, painting at Collaroy Beach with my glam hat and a nappy on my shoulder. Ha ha. Resulting painting is below, right.

"I can't believe just painted those flowers! After a few short months of fun and laughs and great painting (and some truly horrible ones too, ha ha) I am absolutely stunned that I was able to paint something so complicated without terror. Ok, with a little bit of terror. I love how this course gives me confidence, Jenny. You're a miracle worker. "

-Beth Armitage - Levels 1-4

"It's so great to have EVERYTHING at your fingertips, photo references, demonstrations, explanations, 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 was so nervous about doing it, (Level 4) and thought there's no way I was ready to paint those things. Jenny explains everything so well and makes it feel achievable. I'm really proud of what I've accomplished from doing the classes. Our own personality comes out in our painting, rather than being taught how to paint direct copies, which is so important. I love seeing everyone's take on a single subject."

Student Cath R - Stages 1-4

 "Loving, Loving, LOVING Stage 4! So will you. I was totally petrified by the level of expertise I thought was needed however I am blown away by what has been achieved under Jenny's encouraging, insightful, expert tutoring."

Student Jos F - Stages 1-4

Jenny has an affiliated link with Jackson's Art store in London for the most unbelievably cheap prices on paint. Click here:

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 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 paintings on this page?

You do paint all the paintings in the banner at the top of the page.

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 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.
