ARTIST Renata Wright recently opened a small art class business in Wangara, called The Orange Palette.

“I have been teaching watercolour classes in Clarkson, Joondalup and community centres for about 10 years.

“I have formed many friendships in the art circles during this time and met many other art teachers sharing their passion with others.

“I have always wanted to have a space though that is dedicated solely to giving people the opportunity to learn an art form and in April this year, I made the plunge.

“I now run my watercolour classes at The Orange Palette, and I have other teachers ready to commence their own classes over the next two months.”

The Orange Palette will offer workshops on watercolour, acrylic, drawing, mixed media, and calligraphy classes, along with gouache and paper pulp exploration.

“Later there will also be self-development workshops for artists, as well as art history, creative writing and photography workshops,” Wright said.

An open day is planned for the WA Day public holiday on Monday, June 3 from 1pm to 4pm at 31 Berriman Drive, Wangara where visitors can meet teachers, see their artwork, and learn about classes.
