What You
Will Learn

You will learn the skills and technical knowledge needed to underpin your creative intentions - whatever they might be! You will learn to use watercolour (and a whole range of other water based media) with confidence. Teaching is delivered by demonstration, step by step direction and tutorials. Projects and course modules are tailored to suit learner interests  wherever possible. Research and homework are entirely optional! You can choose to join a small group, learn on line or book one-to-one coaching sessions.



Why watercolour?

'I love watercolour! It is a dynamic medium that anyone can use without too much specialist equipment. It's accessible and easily portable – as easy to use at a table, in a field or on an easel. It is such a versatile medium - it really does offer something for everyone.'
