TheÂ Watercolours of Namatjira iPad/ iPhone App brings watercolour painting to life for you! With canvas templates, vibrant colour washes and realistic watercolour techniques, you can learn how to paint just like Albert!
We launchedÂ the App in Canberra in July 2012, here’s what Big hART artistic director, Scott Rankin had to say:
“The contemporary watercolour movement is struggling to survive which is a particularly significant issue considering it is built on thousands of years of national cultural heritage. In order to provide something young people in Australia’s remote and disadvantaged communities would be proud of, we needed to create something that was relevant. And, in doing so, we are helping keep the spirit and the art of Albert Namatjira alive all over the world.”
Check out this awesome video invitation from the launch featuring the young people of Ntaria!
Now make sure you go to the App store andÂ downloadÂ Watercolours of Namatjira and discover the watercolour artist within!
The App is $2.99 and all proceeds from App sales goes to the Namatjira School of Watercolours, training and supporting established and emerging watercolour artists.
Here’s a demo on how to use the App like a pro:
