Watercolour Workshop, 10-4pm, Saturday 10th February '24
A hands-on introduction to the exciting, unpredictable world of watercolour.
Watercolour is a wonderfully expressive medium; but the freedom to paint fresh, dynamic pictures can only be achieved with some knowledge of the processes involved.
This workshop will guide you through the basics and beyond. Using practical, enjoyable exercises, we will learn to lay in washes, explore wet-in-wet technique, glazing, negative painting, hard and soft edges and much more. At the end of the day you will leave equipped with the skills necessary to make expressive, attractive watercolour paintings.
The workshop will be led by Tom Kane.
Ideal for beginners and for those wishing to refresh their practical watercolour skills.
The course does not require any previous experience or existing drawing skills.
All materials and resources are included in the course fee. Tea, coffee & biscuits!
The workshop will be run from 10-4pm with an hours lunch break.
The class will be held in the main studio of Cheltenham School of Fine Art on the first floor of Camargue House, 32 Wellington Lane, Cheltenham GL52 2AG.
