Painting with Watercolours 1

CCOM 1016

Explore watercolours for your first time or expand your watercolour practice through experimentation. In this class, we’ll work with a variety of tools and application techniques while discovering the unique properties of this medium. The course will include hands-on experimentation through quick exercises and the development of several more resolved pieces. This course is appropriate for beginners as well as those who are more experienced and looking for inspiration, new ideas or new directions in their practice.
