In this two and a half hour class we will be exploring the various techniques of watercolour, developing your unique style and becoming more in tuned with the medium. There will be regular demonstrations throughout the eight weeks. There is always lots of friendly help and advice on hand throughout the duration of the course. Each course covers new themes so that repeat students can enjoy new subjects each time.
There will be temporary changes to the teaching of this course due to Covid 19
Your safety is our priority, and in these unprecedented times we need to make some temporary changes until it is safe to welcome you all into class.
So, to begin with, your classes will be taught with a mix of online teaching and some 1:1 tutorial or small group work in a safe, socially distanced environment. Some cases courses may be taught fully online if that works best.
However, nobody needs to come into class until they feel happy to do so, all the materials you need to succeed will be online, and if you choose to stay home, we will make sure you will receive all the support you need via email, phone and through our Virtual Learning Environment.
We shall go though a series of genres, including still life, landscapes with figures, and architecture.
Some previous experience of painting, either self-taught or from another class.
As the course will initially commence online you will require:
Watercolour paint box and a selection of watercolour brushes, watercolour pad and a sketch pad.
Demonstrations, internet references and books.
Tutor discussion and and at the end we have a friendly group discussion.
Practising at home is advisable.
Another course, or continue into next term in order perfect techniques and cover new themes.
