The link for the new class is here: isolationeducation.vhx.tv/products/acrylics-creating-texture

To clear up any confusion, the new format does not currently include a live webinar option. Since restrictions have lifted we haven’t been able to pin down a time to suit everyone returning to their day-to-day lives. We envisaged releasing content that can be viewed at anytime would suit people better as they can watch when most convenient for them, pause, rewind etc. (The lessons are also more compact without Donald being a smarty pants to the online students!🤣) We are open to reinstating the webinars if we can find a time that suits enough people, your feedback is appreciated!

A new class will be released each Tuesday. Homework and questions can still be sent into education@djwaters.com.au and we’ll get back to everyone individually.

Thank-you for your support with the online classes, enjoy!

Update and thanks...
We would firstly like to extend our heartfelt gratitude and sincerest thanks for the support we were shown during an extremely uncertain time for all. Be it a purchase through to a like on Facebook. We would especially like to thank Don's students that pivoted with us and exercised patience and understanding whilst we adjusted our face to face teaching model to online delivery.

We have learnt exponentially, will continue to learn whilst feeling endlessly fortunate to exist in an technological age which has allowed our ongoing contact and operations with the outside world during a time of physical isolation - how incredible is that?!

In March, we nervously took a blind gamble to offer online classes in the form of fumbling Zoom Webinars but can now (somewhat) more comfortably offer the 'Online Arts Channel' isolationeducation.vhx.tv as another string in the bow of Donald James Waters OAM.

Lessons will be uploaded every Tuesday which can be purchased individually or as part of a monthly subscription. These will be advertised on our social media platforms.

Thank-you again for your love and support which gives us the confidence to try new scary things!

Hi Cathy and Raymond, George is watching with me thoroughly enjoying the gig and wishing he could join in with his drums! Xx🥁

Looks and sounds great!

Glad you are back painting to music Don. Jacob and Matt are great entertainers . You painting is looking great. Can’t wait to visit your studio at Jacobs Well after all the COVID restrictions are lifted .

I can just see a weird and wonky hot air balloon with the kids dangling out of it...of course the air balloon has a propeller gadget thing. Or is that just me lol... too many gins? Probably...

Thank's for trying Emma, I think your Dad might need some Metallica to finish off with 😈

And thank you to you for your time and beautiful arts - music and painting. I was told in grade 8 to not choose art bc I was hopeless at it- literally now I struggle to colour between the lines but music is my thing.

We have our granddaughter Maddison watching with us. Maddison said she loves the music and the painting she is keen to see what it will be

Looking magnificent..... l just love that gorgeous sky!💕

He must be tired, it’s looking so beautiful!❤️

Hello Don & Marg!! We miss your handsome face in Cairns!! From Richard and Janine (from Frame Design days)

Take care all of you I’ve loved this xx ❣️

Don the boys are doing a great job- that painting looks amazing -

There is so much singing and enjoyment in our lounge room!!! Thank you both

Thank you all, it’s fabulous!

He’s amazing with her! Actually obsessed. He’s overly loving at times, so we have to watch him haha

Yes thank you!! What a wonderful night for three amazing artists!!

Great job guys thank you! This is a great concept and great fun!

Thank you Don and Emma, it’s been amazing!❤️❤️❤️

Running late, sounds great!♥️

Yes Cathy definitely puts you in your happy place during these trying times 😘

Donald is a work of art!

I’m loving that sky as well Don

My 5 year old has been captivated by your work. A book would be truly amazing

Wow.. I just got a glimpse of where the painting is heading..love it..well don Don

Good evening guys! Looking forward to tonight and seeing what happens with that glorious canvas!

Thanks guys just had a romantic dinner with a craxy Artist and a piano man.Awsome work guys😁😁

Love you Don - going to bed bc getting up early - our little Bonnie has been away in Navy now for 3 years- special day on our driveway instead of the parade.

That was so lovely, thankyou for sharing your music, beautiful words👏🏻☺️

Wish I could play the piano , especially a grand one . It’s beautiful 💕

Takes me back to the NZ cruise when you when were the artist in residence. So much fun each night with you and Marg

Oh, one of my all time favourite songs! I've even used this as a reference to paint! Beautiful Jacob!

Sounds like it would be a good Disney song Jake I love it!

Amazing all three of you superstars the painting the music and the support manager 🙂 So happy to be on this right now.

Thank you both for a lovely night, and the painting looks amazing!

So sad 😞 good to dedicate a song to them and their families - will raise my glass . Thanks to them all xx

Was that a happy dance Don? You look you appreciate a job well done mate.

Thank you Jacob and “the Don” for a wonderful iso Friday night ❤️

Does Jake take requests in the spirit of Anzac day ? The pogues- the band played waltzing Matilda

Can we do this live after COVID at Jakes place? That piano, am in love with it! We can clap and sing and banter ...how awesome 😎

Hope you can pass that previous message on bc Don met her thru mike Pearson on our cruise in 2012...

Am singing along with a glass of wine ...hubby is cooking tea it smells so good!

I love when you put mythical creatures like that in your works.

Lucky Jacob doesn’t have it where we can all sing along...

Congratulations team, you are all amazing.

Hey Donald & Jacob 👋 👋 Thanks for putting on a great show tonight 😊

It was lovely Jake than k you. Also Dons painting has me intrigued...

Don, would you like me to bring over a drop of my old inspiration?You know what I mean .

A mermaid seems to be sitting on the bottom left rock . Her tail is in the water , just missing her top half’s

Thanks for a great evening guys! Excellent work!

It's certainly much better now! Is it possible to bring the piano level down a bit & voice a little too, but not as much as the piano. It's distorting a bit. I am listening with studio monitors.

Piano is peaking out & voice mike is being overtaken by piano mics a bit. Can still hear vocals, but a fair way back Emma-Louise Waters

Great session this morning Don

Sounds good but I’m on iPhone, but could hear everything Dad was saying, over the music

hi Don Emma and Jake looking forward to the show!

Only a little in Jakes studio but still good

Jacob, only hear talk softly, improving now

I’ll Benjamin round for the tap dancing 🤣

Both of you are coming thru cleanly now on Facebook Emma-Louise Waters No feedback

We can hear your vocals

Bev Young

There is reverb Brian

Jake has a hall reverb going on

But pubs open at 10 usually!

Working class man

Sounds good

Don you are clear

I’m watching

Jake i mean

Hello

Hello

Hi Don

No echo here

I’m here

Wishing all a safe and happy Easter spent with your loved ones at home or via technology.

My grandson (pictured) happens to live in a neighbouring property thus I have been blessed to have him accompany me intermittently in the studio during this holiday.

In addition feeling energised by the overwhelming positivity, renewed sense of community and the open practice of gratitude in the face of this health/economic crisis. A metaphorical rebirth of humanity for Easter perhaps? 🤷🏻‍♂️

Thanks Don (and Emma) loved watching the video and I’m excited to get painting again.😊

I'd really love those cushions DJW Oam. To match my two prints on the wall.

Thank you Emma. I will buy after the event. I enjoyed the first one with DJW, but I must admit it was inspiration to get my ironing finished. I do not have any charcoal, but I loved watching the process with a great sense of achievement in getting to the bottom of the ironing. Thanks. 🌹🥰

I'm really enjoying the lessons Don

After an immense amount of 'learning experiences' in both hosting and recording a live webinar, it finally looks as though we are successfully uploading the recording for those who missed it live. Details to come. Thank-you all for your continued support and patience during this online video baptism of fire. Perhaps next week Donald may even stand in frame, but no need to fret until he does *spoiler alert* he's been follicley challenged for some time.

Stay safe and stay sane ✌️❤️🎨

I am sitting here feeling totally frustrated. I joined and paid, but I do not know the procedure to use Zoom. It is asking for Meeting ID or join with personal link name, and I cannot get either. I hope you are recording this. thanka

I am working business hours. If I register can I watch the video's in a the evening and repeatedly

Thanks for a wonderful experience. Love your take on life. I will be there next week !!!

I can’t make the webinar time :(. If I register will it be available as a recording?

Hi Don, will these be run regularly? Me and my daughter would love to do one next week ❤️

UPDATE: ISOLATION EDUCATION WITH DJW

Firstly thank-you for the response and support to our increased online presence. Donald the Dinosaur 🦖 has finally conceded there may actually be something in this internet caper! 🤪

After extensive reflection and consultation (or yelling-we are a ‘passionate’ household), we have arrived at an initial online lesson plan for Wednesday’s which will uphold Donald’s unique teaching ethos of PROCESS OVER CONTENT THROUGH COLLABORATIVE INPUT 🙌🏻

Now what on earth 🌍 does that mean 🤷🏻‍♀️?! I’m sure you’ve heard the old adage about teaching a man to fish 🎣 - Donald wants to teach each individual no matter their skill level the approach and technique to confidently pursue art as on ongoing practise opposed to copying a vase of flowers stroke for stroke and never lifting the brush again... And this is how he plans to do it!

*Edit* these will also be recorded and available for those who can not make the live class.

WEDNESDAY 1st APRIL 10am-12:30pm
1. Evolution a blank canvas - starting with black and white sketching. Art as a mindfulness practice. Turning creative writing into shapes and rotating the canvas. Adding white paint to contaminate charcoal and create a tonal range.

WEDNESDAY 8th APRIL 10am-12:30pm
2. PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES! -how far can you distort your reference material. Compositional layout using references. Using thumbnail sketching to plan your final composition. Rule of thirds, golden mean as a guideline. Traditional drawing to distorted impressionist drawing styles.

WEDNESDAY 15th APRIL 10am-12:30pm
3. THE EASY ONE- Preparation to Paint. Insider tricks to sealing the charcoal / black and white drawing ready to add colour! Glazing and Scumbling- impermanence of colour selections (AKA changing your mind).

We will move on from here to the emotion of colour / line, don’t want to get too far ahead so we can take feedback, make adjustments to improve as we go along.

Student critiques will form part of the lesson format as is a valuable teaching tool, if you wish to opt in by sending your artworks to education@djwaters.com.au, if you do not wish to participate that is ok too! Don will also monitor the email between lessons to offer troubleshooting and advice. Look forward to seeing you in the live class!

Looks great - just have to check out the registration and logistics of how to login.

You're a wise old owl Donald.

Is this the same as last week, but now we pay for it? No drama, just checking. Tks.

So looking forward to these classes. ☺

Fantastic! Signed up!

What do I need to have at home to do this ?

Is there a fee for each lesson?

Please give us some time to get our ducks in a row, we have our work cutout for us considering DJW currently thinks ‘online’ means hanging out the washing. It’s a brave new world for us all. Stay safe and stay sane ✌🏼❤️
