Programme Overview

This course will cover techniques to explore both experimental and traditional approaches to waterbased mediums. Students will explore various properties of the medium which creates translucency and vibrancy whilst developing an understanding of colour theory and practice. A series of progressive exercises will teach students how to handle watercolour while working from 3D subject matter, sketches and photographs. Studying the work of other artists will help inform and enhance learning throughout the week.
