Course description

Experimental Watercolour Techniques: This class is suitable for all levels: for those with existing experience and beginners who are keen to explore the interesting effects of this wonderful medium. Watercolour is quite different from other paint forms; an exciting aspect is that when the paint is wet, we often cannot predict what it will be like when the water has dried and evaporated, leaving the pigment behind. , In the first 4 weeks we will look at some techniques you may be familiar with, such as adding salt and clingfilm, as well as extending and experimenting with these, and we will explore printing impressions of grasses, fabric, cellophane, creating gesso textures,adding permanent acrylic inks and washes of gesso, and more. You will then use these techniques, with the tutorÆs guidance, to develop individual pieces of work in the remaining 3 weeks of the course. The aim is to work in a looser or fresher style, creating interesting textures and forms and exploiting colour and tone., , , By the end of the course, you should be able to:, ò Use a variety of watercolour techniques, ò Create a variety of pieces of work using these techniques, ò Develop your work further using these techniques, ò Successfully review and evaluate your own work, ò Research and evaluate the work of a variety of artists to inform your own work and development in project -based tasks. , , There is no set æhomeworkÆ, but you will get the most out of this course if you are able to do further work and preparation at home., There is no qualification for this course., , There is limited parking on site, but there is a public car park nearby and on-street parking. Beginners and those with some experience.
