Watercolour classes



WATERCOLOUR PAINTING CLASSES 


 No experience class: LEVEL 1 

for those who have always wanted to paint or have painted but never used watercolour.  This is a SKILLS CLASS…. You will learn about the various techniques you need to master watercolour and the magic that results when you use it’s characteristics to your advantage.  We paint using small managable sized sketchbooks and paper. For example we make seasonal cards.  Not all art has to hang on the wall!  You may bring whatever supplies you have but do not rush out and purchase a lot of supplies until you know what would be necessary.  .....or .....


A basic beginner’s kit is available for purchase in these Level ONE classes.  The photo shows the contents of the kit and is $50.  Bring cash to purchase on day one of class.  

Included is a Sketchbook, a Sharpie fine liner, pencil, basic brush set,. Sponge, magic erasers, and a palette with 12 artist grade DaVinci Watercolours.  This will be enough paint and supplies to complete this 6 week class. 

( At the end i will make available a order to DaVinci paints at a reduced price if you want to continue on with watercolour and augment our basic supplies ) 


EVERYONE WILL NEED TO PURCHASE IN ADVANCE( BOTH LEVEL 1 &2 CLASSES) : 2 Full sheets of (30”x22” cut into 1/4 size)  Artist grade, 100% Cotton Watercolour Paper. 


Some experience class:  LEVEL 2  

For those who still consider them selves beginners in using watercolour but have given it a trial but ... found it frustrating.... or need some guidance to develop skills. We will build on the skills from the LEVEL 1  class or your previous experience to create paintings with watercolour.  You will master lots of the skills necessary to create more complex paintings.  We will explore textures, washes, masking, layering, lifting, wet into wet, wet into dry and more.  Still working on smaller pieces of paper so we can explore our techniques and practice our skills as opposed to “paint” a picture. 


MORE experience class:  LEVEL 3

In these classes it is expected that you have the basic skills in watercolour and we can then focus on a subject of your interest.  For example, Landscapes, Florals, buildings, skies.  The classes will be 4 weeks in length.  Once we explore the subject you can then paint ... with guidance...from provided photos or ones you bring in.
