This course is ideal for those people new to watercolour or those with some experience.

Whilst ostensibly a practical course the subject is underpinned by theory and art historical references.

The course will begin with a brief overview of the tradition of watercolour.

However, the focus will soon shift to contemporary uses of watercolour and artists using this medium will be explored and researched.

What will you gain?

By the end of the course you will have created a portfolio of new, innovative work.
