Each week will encompass a different theme, devised between the course tutor and the interests of the particular student body each term.
This course is open to complete beginners and more advanced artists alike to learn the techniques of watercolour painting.
Watercolours are a wonderful medium offering many possibilities. They have been used throughout history, especially as a means of documenting landscapes and natural histories, and continue to be a popular medium to this day, utilised by a number of contemporary artists.
Throughout these sessions, you will be guided through the basics of colour mixing, perspective, and composition. You will be encouraged to explore your own ways of working with watercolour and will have the opportunity to learn about some examples of watercolour artists. During the Summer term, (weather permitting) some classes will take place outside and around the college so that you have the opportunity to create watercolour sketches from life. Classes will be friendly, focused, and fun.
Each term covers different topics and as such, this class will be suitable for both new and previous students of the course.
This course will cover a range of topics, including colour mixing and landscapes. Each week will encompass a different mini-project furthering your understanding of the medium and developing your confidence.
