This four-week course covers the fundamental techniques of watercolour for various effects such as clouds, water, texture and more, as well as brushwork techniques and colour mixing. Also covered is the use of watercolour pencils; black ink incorporation for pen and wash techniques; and mixed media effects combining watercolour with coloured, acrylic inks.
Each medium behaves differently when used alone, so experimenting with the mixes is loads fun and the possibilities are endless to create exciting works of art.
The aim of each class is to build confidence and explore your creativity resulting with one finished artwork per week.

One sheet of cold press (medium) 300gsm watercolour paper approximately 76cm x 56cm already cut into four pieces before the class, or a watercolour pad. Arches, Canson or Fabriano are good brands but any you prefer is fine.
