  • Is this course for you?

    This is a recreational course in watercolour painting for beginners. The learner will be taken through the basics in watercolour techniques and methods with group and individual tuition and demonstrations. Projects will be set in different genres from still life to landscape with step by step guidance. However, learners who wish to work on independent projects may do so.

  • Required qualifications

    No qualifications or experienced needed but more experienced learners will have the opportunity to develop their skills further.

  • What skills will I develop?

    The learner will be taught the basics in watercolour methods and techniques that underpin all watercolour painting. Learners will have the opportunity to combine watercolour with pen and ink and the use of body paint. Projects will be set in different subjects from still-life to landscape with step by step advice and demonstrations. The learner also will learn how to paint with watercolours from direct observation and secondary source material (images).

  • Careers

    On completion of the course learners may either consolidate their skills by doing drawing and painting at intermediate level, diversify onto related art subjects like the general drawing and painting classes or progress onto a higher-level course and onto gaining qualifications in art and design.

  • English and maths

    Although the course is about visual communication, learners will learn key terms, encouraged to use appropriate vocabulary and to discuss their work and that of others. Learners will also learn about measuring, proportioning and perspective.

  • Other important information

    You have to be aged 19+ to join this course.

    Learners will need to provide their own art materials. A basic list would include the following:

    • A3 watercolour paper (350gsm/150lb)
    • Pencils HB-9B and rubber
    • Box of watercolour paint (best you can afford)
    • Watercolour brushes (you can do most things with a good round, size 10)
    • Black drawing pen
    • Palette
    • Masking fluid
    • Ideal but not essential a set of gouache paint
    • Plus access to the internet
