Is this course for me
- Does watercolour painting intimidate you?
- Do you feel that you have to be talented in order to find success with watercolour painting?
- Do your colours look “muddied” or undersaturated?
- Do you want to learn multiple application techniques for painting with watercolours?
- Do you want to learn how to mix pigments and apply colour theory in your paintings?
- Are you looking for a broad exposure to multiple subjects and techniques?
- Do you want to learn strategies for creating strong compositions?
- Are you lacking confidence?
What level should I be at?
The course runs like a workshop, rather than being taught as a set of step-by-step guided instructions. It is appropriate for students of all levels, including those with some previous experience. Numbers are kept to a maximum of 15 (sometimes fewer), which gives time for the tutor to go round and give one-to-one advice. If you are more advanced, we have other activities planned while the rest does the basics.
Who should take this course?
The course is suitable for:
- students with some previous experience who want to learn new techniques to push their practice further
- undergraduate students wishing to improve their painting skills
- those who want to strengthen their skills and portfolio in order to apply for study at art colleges
- beginners welcome
