Watercolour Student

“Coming to the art classes over the years has been brilliant! I started as a beginner and because I like to stay active, I’ve also supported an art class where people were attending after experiencing a stroke. Painting makes me feel relaxed and peaceful, so I’ve loved developing my watercolour skills. The online group is friendly and we give each other helpful advice. At the beginning of each session, we share what we have done at home and get advice from our tutor. I am now looking forward to improving my technique for painting nature and buildings.”


The course will cover a variety of techniques and approaches to painting with a range of subjects from still life to landscape and portraits. You will work from both primary and secondary sources – observation and photographic reference.
You will be given a proposed course outline at the beginning of each term which will be discussed and agreed upon with any special requests considered and adjustments made to suit the group.


Continuous informal assessment through observation, group and individual discussion and comment, question and answer.
