This class is delivered online with limited seats for a highly interactive experience with your instructor.
We will cover the very basics of watercolour in this 3 hour Very Beginner workshop. If you are new to watercolour or need a refresher on the foundational skills, this is where you want to start!
You will learn about colour mixing, layering using both wet and dry brush techniques, and different ways to create texture. We will also discuss various supplies and paper types so you gain the confidence to pursue your own projects at home or enrol in higher level painting classes.
This class will be delivered using an app called Zoom that you will need to download. You can participate using your mobile, tablet or desktop. Prior to the class, you will be emailed instructions on how to connect with the classroom.
*Please note – Our goal is to create a highly interactive classroom environment and be able to give personal feedback to each participant. Therefore we ask that only one person attend a class per registration.
