watercolour painting for beginners

Please keep in contact by visiting the South Street Art Studios website as we may add more courses in the future.

Course code WCB-0516-A, WCB-0516-E
This course is suitable for total beginners who wish to learn the skills and techniques in the magical medium of watercolour painting. The evening class (WCB-0115-E) will be a mixed ability class, suitable for total beginners and those with some experience.

The course is made up of easy step-by-step, structured sessions, with tutor demonstrations to make the learning both informative and enjoyable. The course will look at all the most important techniques needed to create great watercolour paintings, including the wet-in-wet technique, brush styles, layered washes, colour mixing and composition.

The class is very informal and relaxed and students are encouraged to discuss their work with each other. We encourage students to bring their own art materials if they have a preference, but alternatively, you can buy a 'Starter Pack' from us which will have all the materials you need to get started.

Drawing boards and water pots are provided. You can also purchase water colour paints and paper from our reasonably priced stock. If you are intending to bring your own paints please can you include the 3 colours listed in the starter pack.
