Art & Design

This course will help develop basic watercolour techniques, composition and colour mixing skills, through a series of projects.  In addition, the use of media such as pen, pastel and gouache will be combined with watercolour for more challenging projects.

"I am one of your part time students attending Watercolour classes on Tuesday Evenings..., last night I attended the Art Exhibition in the Gallery and thought what a wonderful idea, and a great way to show off what your teachers manage to get us students to achieve and for us as students to see other peoples work.

I brought my family along and they were all impressed at the high standard and also how wonderful the college looks."

What will I be doing?

The course is a structured programme of projects lasting one or two weeks. Learners will work from either observation or photographic reference on a range of subjects including: landscape, portrait, natural form and still life. Learners will be introduced to the sessions with a demonstration covering an element of the subject, before working independently, with one to one discussion and demonstration as required.

Entry requirements

There are no formal entry requirements however, completion of a beginners class is recommended.

What do I need to bring?

A detailed list of materials will be provided on the first session. Learners will need to purchase a basic range of watercolours, a palette, brushes, water pot, 2B pencil, putty rubber, kitchen paper and 16" x 12", 140lb watercolour pad. Please bring any materials that you may have to the first session.
