Course description:

Suitable for beginners to those with experience in sketching and other mediums, students will be introduced to the foundations of watercolour painting and learn the many techniques involved in producing a good watercolour painting. Each lesson in the course will have a different subject matter and learning objective, ranging from foundational knowledge to advanced techniques.

This course is also suitable for those with experience in watercolour as a refresher to proper painting techniques.

After 10 sessions, students will acquire a foundational level of competency and should be comfortable painting still life and landscapes. Moving forward, students will be able to choose their focus of study on landscape, architecture, advanced still life subjects or portraiture and life drawing. This course is suitable for those who have no foundation in any form of art, and those interested in picking up watercolour painting. Basic drawing and sketching techniques, as well as observational skills will also be taught over the course of the lessons.
