Introduction to Watercolour
Watch demonstrations, practice painting, and gain experience in watercolour techniques that you can build on. Learn how to organize a palette, choose and prepare materials, use five pigments to create a variety of colours, lay down washes, and create texture. At the end of the session(s) you will have "frameable" pieces of your own work that you have completed during the classes. You will learn how to frame your art on cradled wood panels or canvas in lieu of mats and glass. Helpful handouts will be provided to guide you in the future. A maximum of four to six people per session allows time for individual attention in an non-threatening and relaxed atmosphere. Absolutely no previous watercolour experience necessary.
