Paulette Bruns has been a Watercolour artist for over 20 years. She has been employed as a tutor by the Waikato Society of Arts for 8-9 years, teaching 1 Watercolour Adult Class, as well as 3 Children’s Mixed Media Art Classes per week, plus also running the School Holiday Art Programme all of which she thoroughly enjoys. Paulette also works part time in the WSA office doing general admin for the artschool and WSA.  

Whilst watercolour is her true passion, she also loves the balance of teaching children. Having raised 2 (now grown) children, she loves spending time with our tamariki inspiring them to create, learn and have fun with a variety of art mediums.

‘Watercolour can be a daunting and challenging medium for many, but is hugely rewarding to work in once you have learnt the basics. It has an ability to show light and luminescence due to watercolours fluidity and transparency that other mediums can struggle to do.’

Paulette believes we should never stop learning, as there are always new ideas and points of view in all areas of art. She finds it hugely rewarding to help people learn a new medium or refine, master and expand their current skills.

Paulette teaches Wednesday Morning Watercolour, 5-9 year olds on a Monday, 10-12 year olds on a Wednesday and 5-9 year olds on a Thursday.
