This course will explore in different media an array of subject matter from still life to portrait and landscape. Learners are welcome to use varying mediums but more specifically water colours, acrylics, gouache, pastels and pencils. Learning how to ‘mix it up’ and complement each medium when exploring your subject. Not feeling constrained to one formula but free to experiment and interpretate.

With new students, the tutor will take them through a range of colour studies, exercises, and demonstrations to provide a firm grounding and knowledge allowing them to explore and expand their own work.
