This course includes both Beginners and Continuing Watercolour courses.
The Beginners course runs for 2 terms only and comprises tuition and demos in basic techniques. These include basic watercolour techniques such as colour wheels and colour mixing, brushes and brush strokes and watercolour washes. These techniques will be applied to paint a range of topics which may include skies, sunsets, water, boats, flowers, trees, land and seascapes, figures, portraits, birds and animals. Layering, negative painting, collage and use of mixed media and textures will also be covered. Students can then develop their own style and preferences. Maximum of 6 Beginners.
The Continuing class is for experienced members who can work on their own projects. An optional topic with resource material is provided each week. The tutor will give advice and assist members to develop further skills as required.
Members provide their own art materials. A list of suitable materials and where to buy them is available from Reception and the tutor is available for advice. The tutor will provide notes and resource material for sessions as required.
