More About This Experience

As sophisticated as it looks, it is actually very simple, and requires no 'artistic talent'. Art, like many other disciplines can be easily learnt. You'll be surprised how just a few simple techniques will allow you to re-create such a beautiful piece of work. This type of water colour is also unique to Cambodia. Similar to pencil drawing, water colour starts with creating an outline of the subject. Proportions are key to making the entire piece look fabulous at the end. A very light shade of water colour is then applied to each of the sections. Next, varying degrees of thicker shades of water colour are slowly added to create texture and lighting.

Additional Information:

  • Bring a picture of your favorite Cambodian landscape or moment and we'll try and recreate that with water color
  • Pick-up location: Exact pick-up location address along with map direction will be sent to your email instantly after booking
  • Please be at the meeting point 10 minutes before the booking time
  • There might be other people on the same experience

despite the language barrier, there is still a lot of interaction between the demonstrator and the participant, via verbal cues, and the translator trying his best

After seeing the pictures and the reviews we expected a relaxed time on a rooftop with a patient artist showing us some sample pictures to recreate or letting us draw our own pictures. Instead we had to drive ourselves to the Academy, sat on tiny chairs in an area which was eve... Read more
