Drawing and Watercolour courses 

 What will you learn?

- We will work from observation with a wide range of subjects: still life, interior, life and the

occasional visits to museums and outdoors.​​

- You will  learn the use of line, tone, colour, mark making and composition, but also understand the meanings a work can poses.

- We will use variety of techniques (pencils, charcoal, pen, pastels and watercolours) and develop a fluid and dynamic approach that will promote confidence in your work.

- You will learn through individual tuition, group critique, group discussions, by seeing other students’ work and by inspirational works of art.

- The courses are a platform to discuss exhibitions, meet people with shared interest, expand your mind and be engaged in a meditative activity,

(some students even call it their therapy session...).

Students will provide their own materials.  List of materials will be sent to students who enrol to the course.  

I will provide at no extra cost drawing papers (not watercolour papers) and a nice cup of tea in the break!
