Course Description

Working with Watercolour 

In this short course we will be focusing mainly on the use of watercolour paint and its various techniques, but as all art starts with drawing, we will also be spending some time on observational drawing.

As we progress we will introduce a variety of materials including pencils, colour pencils and pastels on occasion. Using mixed media to create bold images.

If time allows, we will also look at the way some famous artists have used watercolour and discuss how their methods can affect us.
