Wanda Comrie is an Australian fine artist, maker and passionate creative living in the Margaret River region. In this class, we will explore one of her many 'liddle' oil paintings of indoor plants, set against a strong colour palette characteristic of Wanda's work.

(Note: Wanda is not running this class -- it's a tribute, as our host artist is a big fan of her work!)


Classe Petit's Social Painting with Oils sessions are a fun way to meet new people, rediscover your love for painting or simply explore what creativity means to you in a relaxing, supportive environment. Our painting events include a brief 10-minute introduction to oils for complete beginners. 

In each session, we use at least one modern masterpiece to inspire our own work. We're not after reproductions – instead we fully encourage everyone to tell their own story by creating your own version of the featured art. You'll be surprised at what you come up with; in fact you'll fall in love with it and be proud to call it your own.

Each session only hosts up to 10 people. We encourage you to come with friends, so group discounts apply. No experience necessary, just an open mind :-)


Classe Petit focuses on the journey, not the destination. In our class, we don’t talk about what’s “correct” or “proper”; we encourage free explorations of ideas and techniques, which very often leads to discovering a whole new world of possibilities!

Such a wonderful class! I had never painted with oils before and I learnt so much. The class was a lovely way to spend the afternoon: chatting, painting and drinking wine. The venue is the perfect space, spacious with tons of natural light. Shengyi our teacher was a great, she’s very talented and offered helpful tips along the way. I actually loved my painting I took home! Would definitely recommend.

A Beautiful Afternoon Spent in Zen! I highly recommend attending a class with Classe Petit. It's relaxed and the perfect way to start or continue your foray into painting. Sheng is generous with her tools, teaching and the vibe is "take it at your pace". I came as someone who hadn't painted in over 8 years and was super nervous. Cannot recommend this enough.
