« Perfect! Mysti's first lesson with Joycelin was everything I hoped for and more. Joycelin's bubbly personality overcame Mysti initial shyness and when I collected Mysti at the end of the lesson they were laughing and looking very relaxed together. Joycelin introduced Mysti to watercolours and I was blown away by what Mysti had achieved after just one lesson. I would thoroughly recommend Joycelin to anyone looking for an inspiring art teacher. »

Master Watercolour and Drawing Techniques in simple steps with a highly skilled professional artist in Brisbane. Age 5-16 and adults.

Methodology

I teach in my garden or studio. My method is a "hands-on" fun way of experimenting with techniques and having fun while creating and working loose and intuitively. The basic skills I teach will help aspiring artists or just a day away from busy routines to relax and have some enjoyment. Adult lessons range from $35 per hour packs. Workshops (min 4) are also available for bookings. I specialise in nurturing that 'artist within you' to emerge. And with the basic techniques I offer, and your own ongoing practice, you will develop your own art making styles.

Background

Artist and storyteller with over 30 years experience in making art, writing and teaching. I live in Bellbowrie, Queensland and run classes on week days or weekends depending on the bookings. I am a practicing artist with a Masters Degree in Museum Studies from University of Queensland. I have been an arts curator since 2008.

Perfect! Mysti's first lesson with Joycelin was everything I hoped for and more. Joycelin's bubbly personality overcame Mysti initial shyness and when I collected Mysti at the end of the lesson they were laughing and looking very relaxed together.

Joycelin's response

Bev's granddaughter Mysti was interested in Manga drawing and I asked her to bring some of her sketches when we met for the first time. I asked her how she would like to proceed and what else she would be interested to learn. Then I suggested that I could teach her to expand on her drawing techniques, develop new characters and storytelling structure. I also suggested if she could try painting the characters in watercolour. We tried all of the suggestion and talked about it throughout the first lesson. Mysti has signed up for a four week course. We were both happy for what is ahead.

Joycelin is a a fantastic textile designer, curator and artist. What I love about Joycelin is the combination of her passion for art and environment. Her curiosity of what the environment offers in natural dyes is intriguing. Her passion inspires. Don’t miss out on a art class with Joycelin!’

Joycelin is well versed in her approach to colours when comes to textile painting. From my recent workshop with her doing textile painting using plants were inspirational to me. She takes great care of her presentation and articulates the very essence of choosing the appropriate materials for the project. She is very friendly and happy to help when required. The environment was peaceful and relaxing.

Words are inadequate to express my gratitude and appreciation for the role you have played in nurturing the artistic talents in my grandson. His abilities to express himself through his drawings and his watercolour paintings have increased enormously with your encouragement and teaching.
Your artistic skills and experience in teaching art as well as your guidance and encouragement have assisted him to release his own creative talents. I have noticed after a couple of months of attending your classes, he has blossomed not only with skilful art processes but also as a more self-aware and confident youngster.
My grandson is aged ten at present ─ I am in awe as I watch his growth into adulthood, his potential growing noticeably as it is fostered through your inspirational lessons. As a writer and social worker, I appreciate the value of this grounding.
Thank you.
Lotsa,
Eddie D

Before attending Joycelin’s art class, I could not paint and had no artistic creativity. I am now confident to create a piece of art with the skills I learned from Joycelin. And not afraid to have a go.
 
She delivered her instructions with practical demonstration and explaining the rationale for the techniques and material used, as well as being conservative with the natural resources used.

As an instructor, Joycelin ensured we understood the process of applying the methods of making our own unique designs. She also listened to my ideas and corroborated them with her knowledge.

 
The highlights of her course for me was becoming excited and appreciative of the art I was creating and the different colours that were mixed to create a new one or one required.
 
She teaches from a studio that is light and airy with spacious workstations. All materials were on hand and the workshop was completed on time.
 
I recommend her to all age groups and skill or level of talent and anyone wanting to try something new. She is vibrant, very knowledgeable. A warm and wonderful person to be around and a great instructor.

Cheers Kerry

I have undertaken lessons with Joycelin and found her to be a talented, warm and generous teacher. Her lessons are detailed and she ensures creativity is inspired on all levels. I highly recommend her and the classes she gives! You won’t be disappointed!

Joycelin is a wonderful, hands on experienced teacher & facilitator. It doesn't matter whether you are a novice or semi- professional, Joycelin will guide and teach you with the utmost care and guidance. A wonderful all round experience when you attend her classes, you won't regret it.

I’ve known Joycelin from High School, and took up her offer to learn Watercolour painting. As a beginner with no experience with Watercolour, Joycelin encouraged me and made it a fun experience, she is patient, confident and an excellent teacher. Using the different techniques I’ve learnt, I am proud to paint and have my own first watercolour painting.

Joycelin is an excellent teacher, giving you the right balance of guidance and freedom. I did a fabric class with her a couple of weeks ago and enjoyed my time spent learning a new art medium while doing something I wouldn't usually do in a hands-on, creative environment. She is a unique teacher, encouraging us to experiment and use materials we find around us in nature. Would 100% recommend her!

Joycelin has a sense of fun that enhances her teaching. She is a good communicator and is diligent. I have found her to be capable of working with people a various stages of development of a concept. She is organised and focussed. I have had experience of Joycelin’s qualities in a writing group we both participated in. She proved herself very dedicated to her writing. I have had personal experience of her teaching skills recently because I have been part of a small group Joycelin has been leading in watercolour painting.
