Art Classes and Workshops in Brisbane

Watercolor Classes April 2017

Located in Brisbane, I hold art classes in a variety of mediums including watercolor, pastels and oil. I also teach drawing, which I believe is very important for every artist.  My classes tend to be fairly small - around 12 people or less - so I give each and every student personal attention. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about my lessons or art. 

Testimonials for My  Classes

Val ShawBA Fine Arts Honours

If you are looking for an inspirational teacher, who has an in-depth knowledge of pastels, water colour and graphite, look no further.

You need only to look at Hettie’s personal work to see that she has a great understanding of these disciplines, and is always happy to share her knowledge with others. Hettie’s work will inspire you- look no further.

I have known Hettie for over five years and she has become a good friend and colleague. We worked together at the Joondalup Art Gallery, discussed concepts, ideas, problems and solutions, and exhibited in curated exhibitions together. When Hettie left Perth for Brisbane, she asked me to take over the drawing and painting classes that she had initiated and developed here in Perth.

It was apparent that the students that attended her classes had learnt so much from her, relating to the different mediums, techniques and processes. I hope that she will be given the opportunity to teach and inspire students in the Brisbane area, as she did here in Perth.

‘Love and best wishes Hettie, the students and I wish you all the very best, and look forward to seeing the fruits of your endeavor.’

"Hettie is the most kind and helpful person and of course an extremely clever artist. Her classes were very relaxed and friendly, she would teach and support us individually with the medium we wanted to work with or she would teach basic skills, i.e. how to construct a portrait, to draw perspective , she taught me how to let go of too much control, and much more.

Preferred mediums were watercolour, watercolour pencils, acrylics and pastels, but also pencils, charcoals were used.

I highly recommend her as a teacher and would definitely attend her classes again, given the opportunity."

"I attended Hettie Rowley's drawing class for 2-3 terms and found them to be very helpful in developing my drawing skills in a number of media including pencil, charcoal and pen & ink. Hettie was very attentive and skilled at instructing & demonstrating. I did feel that my art improved during my classes with her.

The atmosphere at Hettie's classes were always friendly & welcoming, so there was a valuable social element to attending as well.

I would definitely recommend Hettie's classes & would enrol in them again ( if available in W.A. still!)"
