Times and dates for Watercolours:
Tuesdays 14.00 -16.00 Heath Village Barn, Eastern Way, Heath and Reach LU7 0AA.
The Summer Term 2019 runs from 30th April – 9th July (except for Tuesday 28th May when there won’t be a class as it’s Half-Term).
What happens during the classes:
We’ll work from a selection of still life objects or photos of landscapes, for example. The sessions will then usually consist of a mixture of demonstrating and practise.
All the necessary core techniques for watercolours, such as how to mix the colours, apply washes and use the brushes creatively are demonstrated with “hands-on” help when needed.
What to expect at the first session:
To begin the Summer Term I will be demonstrating ways to paint flowers – so it will be important to bring some blooms with you. Please ask me if you’re not sure which flowers would be suitable!
Please note: No materials or equipment can be provided, though I usually some spare for your very first session and can advise on the best purchases and where to shop.
You will need to bring along any watercolour materials that you already have and I will be able to advise you on what to use when. If you don’t have any watercolours at all – don’t let that put you off!! – Just bring yourself and a smile, and we’ll sort out which materials will be the best for you to buy as a starter set.
Please contact me if you’re not sure what to bring :))
