Starts Wednesday May 8th 10am - 12pm for 8 weeks
At Atelier Crafers, 1 Cox Place, Crafers
This eight-week course covers learning the basic techniques of working singularly and with various combinations of watercolour, pastels, oil pastels, charcoal and pen to understand the potential and limits of each medium.
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.
What to bring:
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.
One size 10 or 12 non synthetic, synthetic mix or synthetic brush suitable for watercolours
One - one inch or one and a half inch hake brush
One backing board to stick your paper to.
A minimum of watercolour paints includes at least one red, one yellow and one blue and an earth colour. Preferably all of the list below.
Chalk Pastel and/or oil pastel. Preferably a small box set of a few colours. (they’re often in sets of 12)
One stick of charcoal
One waterproof black ink pen
One drawing pad or loose paper to sketch on.
I will have all material supplies as back up.
