Express yourself and develop your creative skills on this watercolour painting course. You'll learn controlled and expressive painting techniques you can use to paint with confidence.
You'll paint a range of subjects including painting from life, landscapes, figures and portraits. You will also paint from imagination. Classes begin with a demonstration by your tutor, who will provide historical context to the methods being used. If you're a more experienced student you'll be able to develop personal themes, subjects and methods throughout the course.
There will be one-to-one teaching so your tutor can discuss your progress with you. You'll also complete a learning plan to track your work. We encourage you to show your work at the end of each sessions so you can discuss your work with your classmates.
There are no entry requirements for this course.
There may be materials you need to help with your studies. You'll either make a one-off payment for these when you enrol, or you'll buy them during the course. Your tutor will talk to you about this at interview or in your first class (if you don't need an interview).
Depending on your course and circumstances, you may be able to get funding to help with materials fees. Please check with us when you come in for interview or enrolment.
