Introduction to Watercolour - Level one Saturday May 25
This is not paint night, this is a workshop to learn the basic skills you need to paint on your own. The instruction method is well proven to help even the most apprehensive students get past their fear of starting in watercolour. ANYONE can learn how to paint in any medium, there is no such thing as "having" talent, it comes as a result of learning and practicing. The class sizes are kept small so that I can work with students individually.
- The level one workshop will introduce you to this exciting and challenging medium. The focus of the workshop will be on the basic techniques used in watercolour painting.
-We will discuss the materials used in watercolour painting, you will learn what to use and why. You will leave with a solid understanding of the materials used in watercolour painting.
- You will learn basic principles of watercolour painting, how it compares to other mediums and how to apply it to your own work.
- You will complete the painting shown here ( the rabbit )
- You will leave with a series of exercises to practice, the more you practice the better you will become.
Cost - $75 per person, all painting materials are provided, please bring a notepad and something to take notes with. ( pen or pencil ). If you have painting materials already feel free to bring them.
