Update on Beginner Watercolour Classes

Hello lovely people!

As you may know, you were once asked to complete Maureen’s Beginner Watercolour Class prior to participating in her other beautiful classes.

Well, we have exciting news! You may now attend a condensed Beginner’s Course prior to any class of your choosing.

Meet Maureen an hour before a class and add an additional $10 to the class cost.

We know how busy everyone’s day to day lives are and so we hope this condensed beginners class will offer a more convenient alternative for those of you looking to pick up watercolouring.

Maureen and the team at APTC can’t wait to see you in one of Maureen’s upcoming classes!
